VETO is a Danish indie-rock band.  They released their first EP, I Will Not Listen, in 2005 and their first full-length album, There’s A Beat In All Machines, in 2006, both released on the Danish hip hop label, Tabu Records/Playground Music Denmark. In February 2007 Veto won the award for Best New Act, as well as Best Danish Music Video at Danish Music Awards. Their song “You Are A Knife” was featured briefly in the American television program NCIS episode “Suspicion”.

Crushing Digits is the bands second album, and the one I first listened to (only moments ago in fact!) The entire album has a heavy electronic element and has a lot of great synth! (and I love me some synth sounds! Always!) Despite many tracks with driving rhythms and beats, I find it very chill. The vocals of Troels Abrahamsen are great. The first single from the album, Built to Fail, was widely successful on the radio receiving heavy airplay as “Ugens Uundgåelige” (Unavoidable of the week) on the public service radio channel DR P3.
