“Who are we? Are we losing ourselves on the journey to find happiness and love? Are the desires we have leading us to loneliness and the death of parts of our personalities?” – Veil of Light
Switzerland’s Veil Of Light returns, regular as clockwork, with their sixth album: Sundancing. Melding emotional depth with lush instrumentation and robust rhythms, guided by funky basslines, the lead single Apricot Kiss summons the sensuality of mid-80s synthpop. With sonic ties to Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, Pet Shop Boys, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, and Electronic, this unabashedly romantic track is illustrated with a lush video filmed in the city of Morcote, in Italian Switzerland.
What you mean to me
I feel ashamed
By every try you see
Not only you help me see
Showing me the man I can be.”
Isolation, connection, fleeting moments between each other – all are emoted with the passionate lyrics about the fragility of love, joy and loneliness. The human condition of intimacy – with all its joys, charged eroticism, and transformation of the Self, reveals itself with this tender song.
