Fall­ing and laugh­ing

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Hobson’s Choice -

Their sound still bears the im­print of 80s pop – they even con­jure up the ghosts of the much ma­ligned bands of the short­lived C86 ‘ move­ment’ – but with a sparkle that makes it all sound fresh and ap­peal­ing.

The band who hail orig­i­nal­lly from Scot­land are fans of coun­try­men Or­ange Juice and Aztec Cam­era who were masters at mak­ing glo­ri­ous pop that en­gaged the brain while sat­is­fy­ing the soul. Veron­ica Falls are not quite at that level yet but the po­ten­tial is clear for all to see.

Other al­bum high­lights are the shim­mer­ing pop gems Buried Alive and Ev­ery­body’s Chang­ing, while My Heart Beats and Bro­ken Toy show they have a change of pace, which will stand them in good stead in what is set to be a long and suc­cess­ful ca­reer.
