Critics Rave About The Dreamy Sounds Of Veronica Falls

Veronica Falls

We’ve been obsessing over the impossibly cool tunes from English indie darlings Veronica Falls lately, and we’re not the only ones!   Their latest release, Waiting For Something To Happen, has been drooled over by critics all over the world:

“What an unexpected and wonderful treat this album is.” – The Guardian

“It’s a record packed with earworms and a deliciously deadpan charm.” – Uncut

“Taken apart from the high expectations set by their debut, Waiting is another strong collection of guitar pop gems from a band quickly proving itself to be a better, more elusive quantity than any easy genre tag might suggest.” – Pitchfork

“This UK quartet conjure a beguiling air of eternal youth in all its charming contradictions, a sunburst of yearning, tedium and expectation.” – The Independent  

“Assured, confident, and infectious, Waiting For Something To Happen sees a band developing both as musicians and songwriters while still retaining what made them great in the first place.” – This Is Fake DIY 

Take a look and a listen below.  Fans of bands like Dum Dum Girls, The Pastels, Seapony, Vivian Girls, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Beach Fossils, or Crystal Stilts should take special note!

Veronica Falls Unveils “Teenage” Video

Twee is back!  Well, perhaps it  never really left, but the genre is certainly enjoying a massive resurgence in popularity these days.  UK-based Veronica Falls has us especially head over heels in love with their dreamy, sweet sound.  If you don’t want to take our word for it, believe the press!  Music mags and blogs are singing the band’s praises.  Stereogum, for instance, remarked that their music “flaunts an array of both dark and bright indie rock sounds, a glossy exterior coating something a little more mysterious and spooky. It’s impressive.”

Check out Veronica Falls’ new vid for “Teenage” below…

If you like what you’re hearing and seeing, you’ll be pleased to know that we just announced that they will be performing at Madison’s own High Noon Saloon on March 15.  Tickets will be available for purchase on our Music Calendar tomorrow (Friday, November 20).  We’re predicting great things for these guys–don’t miss out!
