LP on blue vinyl. Hailing from the eastside of Norway's capital, Oslo, VEPS have known each other since elementary school and began playing music together in middle school, aged 14.

Although growing up with very different influences, the girls had a common sense as outsiders and while making a short film together decided to make an impromptu band.

With Helena, Laura and June already accomplished at their instruments, Maja was assigned as drummer, she had never touched a drum set before, and VEPS was born.

Already causing a stir playing a series of DIY shows wherever they could, the band self-released 'Do I Hear A Maybe? on their own label in 2019, mixed by a man known only as 'The Professor'.

Making stickers with the cover art and giving them away for free, word of mouth created a buzz around the band.

Fast forward to 2021 and the band, equipped with their stunning debut EP, sign to New York label Kanine Records, planting them firmly as one of the most exciting bands in Europe.

Recorded at Studio Tjueen Studios in Oslo, Norway, Open The Door was self-produced by the band and mixed by Girl In Red's producer Matias Tellez.

A love letter to their teenage years, the EP is an accomplished collection of songs, far beyond their tender years at just 17.

Opening with the beautifully infectious 'Girl On TV', the six track EP also features lead single 'Ecstasy', an ode to a guy, drenched in raw pop hooks and crunching tones; hazy 'Do I Hear A Maybe?'; the anthemic heart-wrenching 'Oliver'; the spikey 'Colorblind' and a step into a more mature sound with nostalgic love song 'Funny Things'.

With a seamless blend of 90's indie aesthetic and classic pop hooks, VEPS already have their very own, fully formed sound.
