Once you enter into the dense, immersive sounds of Sydney based producer Veptune, you’ll find it incredibly difficult to leave.
With the release of his incredible debut single Toll, the artist immediately established his penchant for crating dark and captivating electronic tunes that’ll crawl beneath your skin and stay there for weeks.
On his captivating and unnerving debut single Toll, Sydney singer-songwriter/producer Veptune immediately establishes his penchant for crating dark and immersive electronic gems.
All throughout the new track, Veptune effortlessly dances through elements of deep house, electronica, trance and hip-hop to develop a glitchy, unnerving sound that belongs entirely to himself.
On Tolls‘ accompanying music video, creator Nick Tsindos perfectly captures the song’s jarring themes. As he flips between repetitious images of dark, VHS-shot scenes, ideas of self-destruction are cleverly intertwined.
“It takes a toll on our bodies but we think dying is funny.”
Veptune is the alias of singer-songwriter/producer Sam Saint Jones. These are still early days in the artist’s career, but judging by the quality of what we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect more quality music courtesy of this Sydney artist.
