Veronica Falls – 'Waiting for Something to Happen'
- Rated as: 4/5
Here’s a tricky one: if you’re an indie-pop band whose first album was praised for its wide-eyed, scratchy charm, how do you step things up second time around without alienating everyone who liked you in the first place? Veronica Falls have negotiated this tricky progression impressively well. The C86-loving quartet have expanded their range slightly, taking tips from The Primitives, early Lush on the jangling rush of ‘My Heart Beats’, and even krautrock: ‘Tell Me’ has a satisfying motorik thump to it. With 13 songs in 37 minutes, ‘Waiting for Something to Happen’ flashes by, but impeccably crafted tracks ‘Buried Alive’ and ‘If You Still Want Me’ are worth revisiting straight away.
