Veps is a band from Oslo, Norway, that includes Laura (guitar), June (bass), Maja (drums) and Helena (keys/piano) whom have known each other since elementary school and started playing together at the age of 14.
The name Veps means wasp in Norwegian and came about in a slightly cosmic and random way. “One day while in our rehearsal room, we were discussing what our band name should be when all of a sudden a wasp came flying through the window, and we just looked at each other and yelled “Veps!” Drummer Maja killed the big queen wasp before they continued their rehearsal.
The band self-released two singles before hooking up with Kanine to release "Open the Door" in 2021. Showcasing a songwriting sensibility far beyond their youthful years, Veps seamlessly blends 90’s indie aesthetic and classic pop hooks.
Veps will release debut album "Oslo Park" in 2022.
