Top Tracks: Finn Andrews – One By The Venom

Rattling off a series of gruesome fates one by one, the latest single from Finn Andrews of The Veils carries the feeling of a song passed down through the ages. Like some children’s playground rhyme with a morbid history long forgotten, or something chanted around a bubbling cauldron by Shakespearean witches, this track from his debut solo album One Piece at a Time is ever so enthralling. The superb lyricism is complimented marvellously by the accompanying video, which is equally macabre and madcap thanks to its blend of dark imagery and wry humour. ‘One By The Venom’ carries an undeniable allure, an inescapable mysticism, the kind that pulls you in deeper and makes you want to listen on repeat until you’ve memorised every last line.
