Veronica Falls - Broken Toy 7" (Slumberland Records)

$5.99

"In keeping with our penchant for perfect pop, we’re now releasing one of the album’s highlights, “Broken Toy,” as a limited edition 7” vinyl single. It’s the kind of song that singles were invented for -- driving and catchy, an ideal distillation of what makes Veronica Falls such an exciting young band. It’s timeless and, dare we say, classic. On the b-side we’ve included an exclusive demo version of the moody “If You Still Want Me.” - SLUMBERLAND

"Yet in the hands of Veronica Falls the familiar approach sounds both innocent and strategic; there’s eagerness in the way the whole band attacks every note, while the tiniest acceleration in tempo feels like a headlong rush, especially as the voices converge. In songs about getting swept up by infatuation the music sounds like a suddenly shared, irresistible impulse." - New York Times

"Veronica Falls matches every dark emotion with a patch of sunlight; sinister guitar riffs, ghostly reverb, and morose lyrics are offset by feel-good hooks, sweet harmonies, and surf-pop pep." - The New Yorker

"While both Veronica Falls albums make pleasant listening, and the details are well-crafted, what came across Wednesday was robust and bristling, underpinned with an urgency that is hard to find on the albums. For a band that is obviously record-collection obsessed, that was a major achievement." - Washington Post

"There's a clarity of texture-- a specificity even-- to every element of the band's sound. Which makes it something of an anomaly: shoegaze that looks you square in the eye."  Pitchfork
