If “graveyard-pop” was a legitimate genre, British band VERONICA FALLS wouldn’t be so hard to classify. Their self-titled debut, which came out last fall on Slumberland Records, flaunts a wide array of classic indie influences; it’s packed with surf-pop hooks, gloomy harmonies, guitars saturated in reverb. The result is a bunch of catchy-as-fuck tracks about misery and ghosts and killing yourself.
It's somehow both cutesy and creepy -- kind of like Siouxsie and the Banshees might have sounded if they'd been produced by Phil Spector in 1964.Lucky for all of us, they are performing tomorrow night, February 11, at Radio in Somerville, so you’ll be able to experience their goth-tinged power-pop firsthand. Fellow Slumberland janglers BRILLIANT COLORS are opening the show -- so you want to get there on time.Watch VF run around a forest looking hip and heartbroken in the clip for album highlight “Bad Feeling” (embedded above) and check below for a stream of a brand-new track, “My Heart Beats.”
