內容簡介


''...Since their earliest singles, Veronica Falls seem to have figured out the deceptively simple, age-old secret to transcending influences: They just keep writing really good songs. This remains true on the band's second album, ''Waiting for Something To Happen,'' which is not a huge departure from the debut but instead a showcase for subtle, wise tune-ups in the band's machinery. The chemistry between Clifford and James Hoare's dueling lead guitars is still strong, and the band's signature multi-part harmonies are as lush as they've ever been. Perhaps the most noticeable change is that ''Waiting'' feels like a warmer record. ''Waiting'' still broods with the intensity of teenage love poems, but the approach here is more Romantic than Gothic. These aren't songs about heartbreak caused by ghosts, spirits, or dead poets; they're about the more ordinary variety of heartbreak between real, live people. Veronica Falls aren't the only jangly, guitar-driven band out there that can write a memorable pop hook. What sets them at the head of the pack isn't so much their songwriting chops (though they've definitely got them) as it is the lush, full-screen scope of their sound. This atmosphere sounds fully realized on ''Waiting for Something To Happen,'' which was recorded mostly without overdubs and with all four band members playing live in the studio. You can tell Veronica Falls approach the interplay between guitars, bass and drums as carefully as they do their vocal harmonies, and that sense of interlocking group energy gives their sound a roughness, but also fullness and a warmth. ''Waiting'' is another strong collection of guitar pop gems from a band quickly proving itself to be a better, more elusive quantity than any easy genre tag might suggest. --Pitchfork, Feb. 12, 2013
