[BOY-GIRL POP] When London quartet Veronica Falls released its self-titled debut in 2011, fans praised the fringy nature of the record. Not quite shoegaze and too dark to be labeled pop, the band operated under some dark, distant cloud. Sophomore effort Waiting for Something to Happen shows a band enamored by hooks and sugary vocal duets, like an upbeat version of the xx at a yesteryear prom. Swaths of darkness persist, especially lyrically, but overall Veronica Falls has plunged unapologetically into the deep and glimmering pool of pop, a move as brazen and unexpected as the group’s punk-rock beginnings. Scottish trio Golden Grrrls open the show, offering a similarly sweet batch of lo-fi, revivalist pop.
