The Independent Culture

Veronica Falls are a band for whom it's perpetually 1986 and My Bloody Valentine never discovered their speakers went up to "supernova".

The London indie-pop quartet have a devoted following, and with close harmonies, chiming guitars and lyrics straight out of the Big Book of Indie Clichés (all shooting stars and cherry trees), they're ruthlessly targeted at a certain demographic. In honesty, though, it's nothing that Best Coast and the Magic Numbers don't do better.
