Biography

Sexy Kids bandmates Roxanne Clifford and Patrick Doyle teamed up with James Hoare of Your Twenties (whom they met, in true indie pop fashion, at a Comet Gain show) and their friend Marion Herbain to form Veronica Falls in 2009. Similar to Sexy Kids, Veronica Falls' pop-oriented, reverb-kissed tunes were rooted in mid-'80s influences like the Shop Assistants and the Chills but also found them in line with noisy, poppy contemporaries like Grass Widow and Vivian Girls. Their first two singles ("Found Love in a Graveyard" and "Beachy Head") were released in 2010 by Captured Tracks and garnered plenty of positive reviews. Their first album was recorded with Guy Fixsen (who worked with My Bloody Valentine and Moose in the '80s), and Ash Workman (who worked with 2010s groups like Metronomy and Summer Camp), the end result sounding like a perfect blend of the eras. Preceded by the single "Bad Feeling" in August of 2011, Veronica Falls was released in September of that same year on Slumberland in the U.S. and Bella Union in the E.U. After touring the world for most of the year, the band returned to the airwaves in November of 2012 with a new single "Teenage." They followed it up in early 2012 with the release of the Rory Attwell (Male Bonding, the Vaccines) co-produced album Waiting for Something to Happen. Veronica Falls split up in 2014, and Doyle re-emerged two years later with the release of an eponymous album under the moniker Boys Forever. Doyle died in March 2018 at the age of 32. ~ Margaret Reges
