Veronica Falls
Veronica Falls
Veronica Falls are based in London, UK and feature members from the now defunct bands The Royal We and Sexy Kids. After touring extensively in 2009 their first single was released through Captured Tracks in the U.S. Veronica Falls' first British releases are due in the first quarter of 2010. The band consists of Roxanne Clifford (vocals, guitar), James Hoare (guitar), Marion Herbain (bass) and Patrick Doyle (drums).
Brilliant Colors
Brilliant Colors
"Brilliant Colors formed in 2007, but the all-female trio sounds like it could've been birthed in 1977 or 1987. On the threesome's debut LP, Introducing (released last year on local label Slumberland), the band re-creates the speedy tempos, buzzsaw guitars, and yelping vocals of such earlier grrl-fronted postpunk acts as Kleenex and the Shop Assistants. Such music seems like it'd be easy to make — turn the volume up to 11, set a steady beat, yell — but only when someone like Brilliant Colors does it really well does it become clear how difficult it is. There's a necessary tunefulness buried beneath the fuzz and clamor of Introducing, as well as a no-bullshit attitude that's highly engaging." --SF Weekly
Grooms
Grooms
There's something to be said for a band that can cleverly hide their technically wizardry in a bed of incredible songwriting. Grooms, formerly Muggabears, are able to pack dense harmonies and polyrhythms into their sound, while keeping things in a concise post-pop package that leaves room for electronic tinkering. MVRemix lauded their 2011 EP Prom, saying, "There's nothing on this CD I would subtract, no filler." Fans of Cibo Matto, Happy Apple, Sonic Youth and Deerhunter should definitely give them a listen.
