based in Wilmington, North Carolina, 4-piece Vee seem to own all the
necessary qualities and know every rule, or better said, characteristic,
that a band aspiring after becoming the next big thing needs.
In a nutshell they could easily be defined as a classy (southern) American
AOR/pop band, but let me also stress out their fragrant really well-done
songwriting, matched with a powerful rhythmic section.
If you're looking for great catchy vocals and back-up vocals, then the
opener "Moving on" will satisfy your demands in full,
while if you prefer to be charmed by Veronica's sexy vocal timber, well,
you'll be consuming the 2nd track , "1,000 Horses".
Without forgetting the romantic melodies contained in "Shelter",
opened by soft keyboards, featuring memorable lyrics every male'd love
to hear from their girlfriends or wives.
As far as I'm concerned, I prefer "I Forget" deadly,
probably since it proves to be the most roaring of the 4, gifted with
effective stop 'n' goes and a short, tho heartfelt guitar solo.
Considering that we're in front of a band born in Sep. 2001only, and
this is a self-financed release, it's correct to assess the sound as
professional enough, even if never wicked or cutting; maybe on the occasion
of their official debut, some 'scratches' more would reveal themselves
as the icy on the cake, owing to their strong attraction potential of
most of the rock fans, even if I'm convinced that the main entrance
of UK's and USA's specialized charts is already open for Vee. We just
have to hope they won't soften by selling their souls and getting boring
retarded popstars one day!
Meanwhile it's the proper case to say: "God Bless America!".
