Veronica Falls ‘Buried Alive’ + new London Show

On their sophomore effort “Waiting For Something to Happen”, London foursome Veronica Falls take a major step towards the big leagues, producing a gorgeously poignant and deliciously infectious album which tackles the difficult transition period from the teenage years to adulthood in all its befuddled glory.

Buried Alive” is one of the sparkling pop highlights of the album, one which retains the band’s macabre sense of sly wit (as shown by previous singles such as “Found Love in A Graveyard” and “Beachy Head”) while at the same time marrying it to the band’s effortless way with an infectious hook. It is yet another addition to the band’s indispensable pop cannon, and yet another reason why Veronica Falls are undoubtedly in a league of their own.

In addition, the band have just announced another headline London show, after their upcoming sold out gig at Shoreditch Church in February. They’ll now be playing the Islington Assembly Hall in April, closing out their tour with another unmissable London date.

Hello!

Happy, snowy January to you!

A young, female singer-songwriter is on the lookout for a London based drummer / percussionist, guitarist, bassist and keyboard/synth player and/or multi-instrumentalists.

It would be great if they were happy to sing harmonies and backing vocals although it isn’t vital.

Do let us know if you’d be interested in hearing the music and meeting up to play.

She is looking to tour from the Spring onwards.
