Originally released on cassette in 2016, ‘From Madness to Nomadness’ is the debut EP from Caen, France-based group Veik and is now being reissued on vinyl for the first time, with a limited 10” release courtesy of Fuzz Club Records. Introducing listeners to the trio’s motorik, synthesised post-punk, the EP is a compilation of four tracks taken from a two-day recording session in the summer of 2016, recorded and mixed by Hugo Lamy of fellow Caen experimental duo Glass. The cover and the title of the EP are openly inspired by the ‘Telepathic Music’ works by the French conceptual artist Robert Filiou, outlining the band’s multi-disciplinary approach to music from the off.
At the time drummer/vocalist Boris Collet told a local media outlet that "we wish to assume links with other artistic disciplines like photography". Concerning the reference to Robert Filiou, he added: “It is not so much the visual aspect that is important as the philosophy and the vision of the economy that he develops. The result should not be pompous or falsely intellectualizing. It is just that it seems relevant to build bridges between different fields (artistic or not). Bringing a bit of philosophy, architecture, images, sociology or geography into music can't hurt. It's not pretending to be anything else than what it is, it's still music, but I think there is a gesture and an intention to assume, no matter how you qualify it (creative, political, reflective). You have to allow yourself to do it."
