Veronica Falls, "Waiting for Something to Happen" (Slumberland)
The second full-length album from indie pop's Veronica Falls is a tasteful guitar pop set, brighter in tone than their first. The London foursome takes a communal approach to singing their lovely melodies and there is nothing remotely discordant about the affair.
The lyrics glorify the moments in between and aligned with the music play like anthems for the indecisive on "Waiting for Something to Happen." These are songs about tiring of the people you hang out with, last conversations, the shortcomings of connectivity and the intersection of early adulthood.
It's not that Veronica Falls shun responsibility ("They say act your age") or compromise ("Driving late at night/I let you listen to the music you like"), they just don't want to settle down ("Bury me alive").
A few tracks take subtly winsome turns: the drizzle of classic British folk in the opener, the elliptical harmony on "Shooting Star" and the chorus on "Falling Out" blossoming into their catchiest moment to date.
