Review: Veronica Falls – Bad Feeling/Back PagePosted: October 11, 2011
Veronica Falls release their new single, ‘Bad Feeling’ this week, featuring B-side, ‘Back Page.’ The London 4-piece are out in The States touring with The Drums and they’re sure to be making a good impression on route.
‘Bad Feeling’ holds a galloping pace, the kind that sounds like the title sequence to a Western with a cunning cowboy and a couple of horses disappearing into the distance. They’ve got the whole girl/boy vocal harmonies going on which gives this 60′s inspired sound precision and class, whilst drawing comparisons to the likes of Summer Camp and Slow Club. The sweet voice of singer, Roxanne is backed up by the male front of the group, as she confesses, ‘I’ve got a bad feeling, and it’s not going away.’
B-side, ‘Back Page’ is a fraction slower with a twangy guitar in tow and elongated vocals to give those hushed unity-ridden harmonies emphasis. Veronica Falls needn’t have any more bad feelings because if they carry on like this, they’ll be free of any worries in no time.
