Veronica Falls announced their sophomore LP Waiting For Something To Happen last week, to be released February 12th on Slumberland (February 4th on Bella Union in the UK). Given the high quality of last year’s debut and this year’s awesome standalone single “My Heart Beats”, there is pretty good reason to be excited. Yeah, I’ve been waiting for this news for a while. Check out the ace first single, “Teenage”, which offers a slightly lackadaisical take on the band’s plentiful pop talents.
Update: It turns out “My Heart Beats” will actually be appearing on Waiting For Something To Happen! Check out the full tracklist below via exclaim.
