Veronica Falls – New Track ‘Teenage’

Those London based, goth-pop scamps Veronica Falls work quickly. In the space of just over 12 months they have managed to  release their debut album, play a load of shows in Europe, and now they have announced their sophomore album Waiting For Something To Happen is all wrapped up. The album is set for release on 4th February next year on the steadfastly reputable Bella Union label (US will get it from Slumberland on 12th February). The album has been described as a ‘bold and deliciously assured leap forward’ promising an set of  ‘immaculately conceived and perfectly wrought pop songs’. Sounds good, but I hope the gnarly scuzzy pop and tongue-in-cheek wit of their eponymous debut hasn’t been lost to so-called high production values (not that I’m a purist, of course). Well, I needn’t have worried. The band have sneaked out a teaser for the album in the form of ‘Teenage’ and, if this track is anything to go by, it seems like Veronica Falls have managed to retain their quintessentially sardonic super-ego, they’ve just given the music a spit-polish in the production room. That said, ‘Teenage’ is pulling an undoubtedly radio friendly direction, but the vocal meodies and hooks of their first album tells you this is the direction they were always heading for.
