Bands are best described as a merging of talents, personalities and musical direction. Often though, they start as a partnership between two like minded people. Singer guitarist Roxanne Clifford and drummer Patrick Doyle were in Sexy Kids. The pair recruited singer/guitarist James Hoare and bassist Marion Herbain to launch the indie pop band Veronica Falls.
In '10, a year after they formed, Veronica Falls issued two singles, "Found Love In A Graveyard" and "Beachy Head," on a small indie imprint. The singles did little to raise the group's U.S. profile but they were able to attract producer Guy Fixsen (The Breeders, The Pixies, Wolfgang Press) to work on their self-titled full-length debut.
Though the album failed to ignite the masses, it did earn favorable reviews from a slew of publications - Pitchfork, The New York Times and Spin among them - and garnered airplay on college radio and from key non-commercial broadcast outlets like Seattle's KEXP and SoCal's KCRW.
Recorded with Rory Attwell (The Vaccines), ''Waiting For Something To Happen" Veronica Falls' sophomore effort, dropped in early '13. The set contained the singles "My Heart Beats" and "Teenage" and received a positive review from Rolling Stone magazine.
