Veronica Falls: “Come On Over”

Veronica Falls 3761833948_87ac97ce07_o

I’ve resigned myself to the fact that The Sexy Kids are dead, and in their place is a more socially acceptable outfit that features guitars that thunder and harmonies that throb and please but never overwhelm.  Veronica Falls are still a bunch of really attractive London youngsters, but now they have an actual album entitled –wait for it- Veronica Falls coming out on September 20th.  It’s been three years and two EPs in the making; actually including the best songs on the short players (“Beachy Head”, “Right Side of My Brain”, “Found Love In A Graveyard”, “Stephen”) and a new song free to download: “Come on Over”.

If ever there was a Lo-Fi anthem with a devil-may-care attitude of wishy-washyness, it’s been captured in the grand meandering guitar opening and the simple and foot pounding chorus of the album closer.  Well, in truth the whole of the Veronica Falls catalogue can be called anthems; in that they bring out the basest need to spend your youth in the most unintelligible and irresponsible ways…the best ways.

Download “Come On Over” and watch the Army of Kids directed video below.  And catch them on tour with the Dum Dum and Vivian Girls this summer.
