The best kept secret in music


"Bounce-Single Review"

'...the title track builds around some particularly effective guitar work, culminating in an emotionally charged indie epic, while ‘Weeds (Beauty.s A Beast)’ shows a more experimental edge….'

One to watch for next year.

"New Positivity- Single Review"

"… This is fine, fine stuff……..this is more than a little off the wall, yet the band manage to wrap up the song in an accessible package. Not just one excellent track but three, which certainly marks their card for further investigation.”

"Walking to Isaville- Single Review"

"A lilting, piano-led number that conjures the sense of pilgrimage, nostalgia and the rich pastoral landscape with which they are surrounded in. Mature songwriting with lovely melodies and arrangements - Isaville seems like a safe, warm and happy place to be. A band to watch".
-Danielle Brigham.
- Hot Press (Ireland) July 2004


"Raw and eclectic, rich in melody and positively glowing with a dark skull-pounding energy, Veneer are what Franz Ferdinand might sound like if they had Bertolt Brecht for a frontman and miniature clones of Tom Waits for a rhythm section." -

"Veneer live"

"Veneer showed no such lack of bloodletting. Indeed, at times the Limerick lot seemed to venture deeper into the heart of darkness than any sane band would want to go. Frontman Ger Lane is the kind of character more likely to be found stalking superstars than socialising with them, and the music is a taut, neurotic tryst between Matt Johnston and The Tindersticks... when they did crank it up it sounded like the depths of hell were opening to reveal the Velvets in all their White Light/White Heat"
