Just a few months after the release of “You won’t say that“, American indie trio VEAUX, formed by Aaron Wagner, Andrew Black, and Dominic Wagner, returns with another great single called « Tell Me That You Love Me ».
Speakin on the inspiration behind the track, VEAUX says to Pop Matters :The new track, as Aaron Wagner recalls, is a look into his upbringing as a Black liberal raised in a white conservative town. He and his brother, VEAUX drummer Dominic, were adopted into a very religious Christian household—with Aaron even briefly working at a megachurch. The two VEAUX brothers have literally spent their entire lives so far fighting through prejudice layered on by their own community. « Tell Me That You Love Me » is written and performed as a reaction to this prejudice, its lyric video featuring Aaron front-and-center as he delivers the searing song in a forward, matter-of-fact way. Industrial riffs between verses recall art-pop and rock this side of Gorillaz as Aaron unleashes his truths.
