Ved started as a solo-project by Mattias Nihlén taking inspiration from film music, progressive rock, early electronic music and folk. From there Ved has developed into a rhythmic machinery. Surf-rock, horror movie soundtracks and found cassettes are some of the ingredients you will hear on their latest album. First track "Looney Tubas" samples sounds from the Looney tunes propaganda cartoon "Tokio Jokio" (1943). Angel dusty funk is one way to describe it. Title track "Omikron" contains sounds of neurons being fired in an anesthetized cat´s brain in an experiment conducted by neurophysiologist Torsten Wiesel. "Univerb" combines a slow, nervy bassline with sounds from a police video of a sports car formerly owned by the Swedish king, Carl Gustaf, being chased by police. "Neo Geo" contains a field recording of a man selling Orbit chewing gum in the streets Tajikistan.
