5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Album October 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been waiting years to find an album as good as this- it's as good as anything by Pixies, Nirvana, The Smiths- all my favorite bands. The female singer's voice is beautiful, and the male background vocals work well. It often reminds me of the mood of the song "California Dreaming". These songs are extremely well written and arranged, very soulful and inspired. The at times slightly off tune vocals somehow make everything more endearing. I'm the pickiest music listener I know and have only found a handful of musicians who meet or surpass my expectations. This band is among them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deserves constant rotation October 16, 2011
Format:Audio CD
While listening to Veronica falls, the newest British import, one may find themselves feeling as though Throwing Muses or The Pixies have created another spinoff. Though obviously influenced by, and giving nods to, indie groups from the 1980s and 90s, this band is still very original in what they deliver. With so many bands trying to vie for notice in the indie-pop-punk meets ambient scene, Veronica Falls is a standout.

They deliver beautiful harmonies, spot-on instrumentation, and slightly dark lyrics, sounding somewhat like Mazzy Star, but with a more upbeat undertone. The songs take us on a melodramatic journey through teenage tragedy, lurking depression, and dark hearts, all while leaving us feeling oddly upbeat about it all. While singing about how they "Found Love In a Graveyard," you may find yourself feeling oddly happy- because they did find love. They make "Misery" and having a "Bad Feeling" seem more than bearable. With the progression of each of their songs, they bring the listener farther into their world, which is slightly dark, but mostly dreamy.

Veronica Falls is an album that should be not be ignored, but rather put on rotation for quite a while. They are masters of making the macabre seem seductive and even joyful. So, the next time you feel like grave dancing or chasing shadows, invite Veronica Falls along, because they will show you the unexpected joy in the darkness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Killer little reverb-driven pop songs December 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Debut album out of London via Glasgow delivers bright, playful, lively guitar twee-pop stamped
with a punky, melodic D.I.Y. ethos that sounds primed to churn out addictive indie hits. Killer little
reverb-driven pop songs that sneak up and recruit you while you're bouncing around the room,
laughing at the world, insanely humming along. Recalls the Shop Assistants, the Pastels, Best
Coast, Wedding Present, Beat Happening, Frankie Rose and the Outs. Members from Sexy
Kids, Your Twenties, Bricolage, The Royal We.
