Upstream by Thy Veils: Review
Thy Veils, an electro art-music group from Romania, has released their first new material since 2022 with ‘Upstream’. The four-and-a-half-minute track is an encapsulation of tranquility, with soothing orchestration masking unsettling vocals to evoke chills reminiscent of dream pop. The track has Thy Veils’ distinctive dreamy ambiance, with a subtle art pop tone adding an edge typical of music from throughout the world. From their next album ‘Next Forever’, this song delves into the knotty topic of where creative energy comes from. The group conveys the concept that there is more room for creativity than one may think and that the pursuit of it can feel like coming home.
Thy Veils’ ‘Upstream’ is a spectacular demonstration of their originality and musical innovation. Featuring the mysterious vocals of Alira Mun and the abilities of Mircea Ardeleanu Jr., Petre Ionutescu, and Attila Lukinich, the band is directed by producer Daniel Dorobantu. The technical skill behind the song’s creation is commendable, and the notion itself is a remarkable investigation of transcending our own level of existence. Thy Veils is a formidable musical force since they reliably produce fully realized and intricate works with each release.
Anyone interested in dream pop or electronic music should listen to ‘Upstream’. A highlight among Thy Veils’ catalog, this track is a testament to the band’s skill in blending eerie voices with soothing orchestration, as well as their innovative approach to exploring deep existential themes.
