The Veils

Finn Andrews is The Veils, or at least is the most famous member. An aspiring painter, he eventually changed over to music, and moved from New Zealand to London to start his band.
The band is famously influenced from a wide variety of artists and bands, including David Bowie, Joy Division, Patti Smith, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits. The above song, "The Letter," does sound lyrically like something Bowie would write and it has a distinctly New Romantic/general 80s feel to it.
