location: london, uk
label: captured tracks
Featuring present and ex-members of Sexy Kids, The Royal We, and Your Twenties, London based four-piece Veronica Falls are very much in thrall with the better side of indie-pop. Partly inspired by “all the uncool shoegaze bands”, Veronica Falls have already made waves on the live scene with support slots for the likes of Marnie Stern, Crystal Stilts and The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, and have released their first EP for US indie label Captured Tracks.
