"Where Has The Fire In You Gone?" by VEYU – A Song Review

     We don’t want to be misunderstood – there are prominent differences between the songs and we enjoy them for fundamentally different reasons. But each time we replay our favorite track from VEYU, we think of Pat Benatar’s 1983 classic “Love Is a Battlefield.” In both the Benatar hit and "Where Has The Fire In You Gone?," the mixing accentuates no-frills yet invigorating drums. The VEYU track isn’t anthemic, but the emotion in the vocals has the feel of an anthem. The songs have very different melodies, but the notes bear similarities when the song titles are shouted by the respective vocalists (that is, the shout of "Where has the fire in you gone?" at the 2:26 mark of the song reminds us of Benatar’s shout “Love is a battlefield”).

     VEYU is based in Liverpool. The five members are Chris Beesley (vocals, guitar), Adam Bresnen (vocals, guitar), Ash Hopkins-(bass), Tom McCabe (drums), and Donovan Collins (synth, keys). "Where Has The Fire In You Gone?" is on the band’s six-track EP “Underbelly.”
