new music: north carolina’s alternative soul band the veldt release otherworldly new single, “sanctified”

February 23, 2016

North Carolina natives The Veldt (named after Ray Bradbury’s short story of the same name) have come out with a new, ambient track called “Sanctified”. The aforementioned song is a wave of otherworldliness, from the disembodied voices, buzzing, muffled synthesizer, and electronic beat which all come together to a sound that’s Southern gothic soul mets ambient rock. Definitely worth a listen.
