Boston Herald profiles 20-year-old singer/ songwriter Finn Andrews, son of XTC and Shriekback keyboardist Barry Andrews. Andrews left NZ at 16, formed his band The Veils in London, and spent 5 years recording an album  The Runaway Found – with Suede’s Bernard Butler.

Andrews recently returned home to put together a new Veils line-up.
