New Music Review: Veronica Falls; “My Heart Beats” (LISTEN)
The song, “My Heart Beats” was posted to Slumberland Records’ Soundcloud page ahead of their upcoming tour, which begins tomorrow at The Black Cat in D.C. Fans of the band will be pleased to hear that the song picks up right where their debut left off. Roxanne Clifford and James Hoare’s vocal trade offs, slightly noisy guitars and propulsive beats are all here — as is the expected stellar songwriting. It’s tempting for a lot of bands to play around with their sound too much after their debut — which accounts for a lot of underwhelming sophomore releases — but if “My Heart Beats” is any indication, that won’t be the case for Veronica Falls.
Veronica Falls know their strengths (and how to write great hooks) and “My Heart Beats” leaves me eager for more music from the Scottish quartet (although I’m far from tired of their initial offering). It also makes me wish I could go to their show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on Thursday. Be sure to check them out if you’re in the area.
