Under the leadership of Black identical twin brothers Daniel and Danny Chavis, THE VELDT was present for the first wave of shoegaze/dream-pop. In the 1990s, they recorded with Cocteau Twins' Robin Guthrie; toured with the Cocteaus, the Jesus and Mary Chain, and Echo & the Bunnymen; and released several classic albums on a smattering of major and indie labels. The Veldt's sound and image was (and remains) equal parts shoegaze and soul, and their body of work has stood the test of time, influencing artists as diverse as TV on the Radio, the Weeknd, and Bartees Strange. Even now, the Veldt refuses to rest on its laurels, continuing to release new material, play regular live shows, and collaborate with kindred spirits through its NoirBizarre multimedia umbrella.
