Track Of The Day: VERO – ‘Beg!’

A seething guitar anthem fueled by the anger that’s left behind by a flawed relationship, Stockholm-based trio VERO have shared their latest single ‘Beg!’. Released via PNKSLM Recordings and one half of an upcoming 7″ single that’s set for release on 14th January, the track is saturated with brooding bass lines, swirling riffs and stinging vocals.

Formed of teenage friends Julia Boman and Amanda Eddestål and Clara Gyökeres who they befriended whilst DJ’ing on the Stockholm nightclub circuit, VERO create music inspired by an eclectic range of influences. Their main purpose, aside from creating anthems with shades of 90s alternative icons Sonic Youth, is to challenge the idea of what a modern guitar band is supposed to be. With new single ‘Beg!’, the trio have crafted a bold, visceral statement of autonomy, antagonising listeners with their crystalline vocals and raging rhythms.

“BEG! is about dysfunctional relationships, but most of all it’s a song about anger,” the band explain. “We wanted to write something that oozes anger, and we think it does. It’s our favourite song to play live and it really sets the vibe for what’s to come.” With a debut album in the pipeline for 2022, we can’t wait to hear more of VERO’s charged sounds.
