Today’s Artist of the Day is the duo VEIILA from Saint-Petersburg, Russia!
The band’s name comes from the European mythical creature veela, which is believed to be an impossibly beautiful woman with a seductive magical voice. Men who gaze upon her fall instantly in love and women take their own lives at the sight of such beauty.
VEiiLA has his roots in the Russian Far East, under the feet of a volcano, and in the traditional music of the indigenous Itelmens. In Saint-Petersburg, after several music projects, it developed into the sound of Animal, VEiiLA first single.
