Veronica Falls

Walking over cobblestone under the eyes of stone statues, Veronica Falls find themselves in the spring idyll of Porto’s Cemitério de Agramonte. Once the London-based band comes across the first snoozing cat, they are taken by these serene graveyard creatures. The bassist Marion Herbain is especially fond of them and goes stalking for more moggies. Roxanne Clifford, the band’s singer and guitarist, swarms out to take some more analog photos. In this picture-perfect setting of infectious tranquillity Veronica Falls perform their brand new single “Teenage”. It’s a guitar-driven song about an enthusiastic first love, about holding hands and carving names in trees, but there are already dark clouds on the horizon when Roxanne sings: “Driving home at night, I let you listen to the music you like. Then I’ll drop you home again.” As a short conversation indicates, the band then decides not to play their hit single “Found Love in a Graveyard”. It might have been just too obvious in this setting. Roxanne suggests to perform “The Fountain” instead, another melancholic and tuneful song!
