VEPS are leaning hard into a very rough and ready DIY aesthetic, and I am absolutely here for it” – Far Out Magazine

Rising Norwegian alt-indie pop quartet Veps have released ‘Break & Entry,’ the third offering from their forthcoming new album Dedicated To. The album comes out via Miktam Records/Universal Music on June 14th.


The album’s opening track, ‘Break & Entry’ sees the band dial back from their usual raucous, garage tinged tones for a beautifully emotional piano driven ballad. Produced by Marcus Forsgren and mixed by Matias Tellez (Girl In Red, Maisie Peters), the track breaks new territory for the quartet as they continue to grow as one of the most exciting young bands in Europe.  “‘Break & Entry’ was written with a lot of inspiration taken from relationships between both lovers and friends,” the band said of the single. “It’s about the empty feeling you get after giving everything you have to someone, and hoping to receive something back that never comes.” Listen to ‘Break & Entry’ HERE.


Veps deliver another collection of indie pop bangers on second album Dedicated To. Finding a sound with a new sense of maturity and freedom, the band haven’t strayed far from their raw, DIY ethics on the LP. Opening with the beautiful, piano driven track ‘Break & Entry’, the album includes raucous new single ‘Greetings From Peru,’ the emotionally vibe filled ‘Say What?,’ the jagged, dark synth popper ‘For Thirsty Dogs’ and future live favourite ‘So Speak’.


Formed when the girls were 14 years old, Veps, now 20 years old, have already achieved more than they could have imagined at that age. Releasing their debut EP Open The Door to acclaim in 2021, the band followed with their beautifully frantic debut full length Oslo Park in 2022. Already ticking off a plethora of international festivals including The Great Escape, Reeperbahn and Stag & Dagger, as well as Norway’s biggest festival Øyafestival, Veps completed their debut UK headline tour in spring 2022, culminating with a headline date at Sebright Arms in London.


Now signed to new label Miktam Records/Universal Music and with a craft of song writing well beyond their tender years, Veps, with their seamless blend of 90s indie aesthetic with classic pop hooks, are ready to take 2024 by storm.


Veps are Helena Mariero Olasveengen (keys/vocals), June K. Urholt (bass), Laura Dodson (guitar/vocals) & Maja B. Berge (drums)
