Waiting for Something to Happen

Waiting for Something to Happen by Veronica Falls
Released: Feb 2013
Label: Slumberland Records
London foursome Veronica Falls have excavated the loose, playful sounds of classic indie pop and made them fresh again. The girl-boy harmonies swirl as sweetly as chocolate and PB, while upbeat rhythms and jangly guitar belie a more potent sense of youthful restlessness in the lyrics: "I'm a broken toy like you"; "Everybody's crazy, what's your excuse, baby?" Vocalist Roxanne Clifford's gentle purrs inject the songs with a Stereolab tenderness, but the band also touches on influences like Television ("Tell Me"), Pixies ("Shooting Star") and The Velvet Underground ("Daniel").
