It might be a week after Valentine's Day, but James Hoare from Veronica Falls has pieced together a tribute mix dedicated to the girls and girl groups of the 60s and 70s who hold a place in his heart.
"This is a mixed selection of punk rock, experimental and 60s girl groups, and different bands/artists I like", says James. "We played with Animals and Men a while ago and they were great. It's a nice thing when a band is rediscovered by a new generation."
More than just a collection of James' girl crushes, the mix echoes the influences of the band's sound, while also giving clues about the sonic direction of their new, sophomore album. "60s girl groups have always been an inspiration to us as a band. We've taken a lot from them, both lyrically and harmonically, especially the [Phil] Spector produced groups", says James.
