Biography

Between multidisciplinary artist and musician, Jay Jermyn and musician, Julian Currie, Veople is an experiential sound collaboration lingering in the space between tension and release through textural melody, house-oriented rhythms and electronic production.

Veople began composing music and quickly released their first single ‘Riviera’ in 2015 to immediate success on FBi Radio Sydney and revered music blog, Hillydilly. This trajectory continued in the international music scene when signed to Los Angeles based Danger Village Music Publishing the same year.

Regular rotation on Triple J Unearthed for follow-up tracks ‘Distant Bodies’ and ‘Youth Code’ cemented Veople as a band to watch but despite the success, both Jermyn and Currie were unsettled in their sound.

The pair, who had played both together and apart in various other bands, joined forces for a last minute musical accompaniment to Jermyn’s solo art exhibition at Maverick Art Space in Coolangatta in 2017. This moment became genesis for a journey into more instrumental and electronic soundscapes.

Influenced by the likes of Civil Civic, Japandroids and Digitalism, Veople began work redirecting their sound and in 2017, were commissioned to produce new music by Super Souvenir as part of Bleach Festival and Festival 2018 during the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. Veople announced shedding their old skin and pressed a contemporary vinyl record ‘Day/Nights’ that instrumentally translated the emotive nature of time and place as achieved in a 24-hour window on the Gold Coast.

Veople was also a recipient of the HOTA Creative Development Grant to produce new work in 2019, culminating in a booked-out live performance at HOTA’s Outdoor Stage.

With a penchant for repetition and aural release, Veople continues to create equally ambient and aggressive journeys by pushing the boundaries and expectations of experimental listening experiences.

Veople 'Tilt' the world upside in their debut single


“ With 'Tilt', Veople continues to produce ambient and aggressive journeys by pushing the boundaries and expectations of experimental sound and experiences. "Tilt" is the catharsis of that, building on a post-rock momentum and carving two songs into one auditory cacophony for your ears to enjoy.”




Instrumental: Veople – Tilt



“Tilt is by far one of the most powerful pieces of instrumental music I’ve heard in a while.”





“Tilt” - Declan Byrne

“This is like watching a tidal wave roll over the beach wall and just take everything over”




VEOPLE GIVE US THE FIRST TASTE OF THEIR 2020 JOURNEY WITH ‘TILT’


“Tilt is something journey like, It’s deep but uplifting. It combines genres of all kinds with sounds similar to that of Digitalism and hints of even John Hopkins. It’s an instrumental entry into an audio void that is an enjoyable escape from reality. We’re looking forward to hearing what is next for Veople.”
