This May, a gentleman named Leopold found his way into my inbox with a gift: a new song from an LA-based dream-pop duo. And I’m sure glad he did. If you’re like me and adore artists like SALES, The Marias, and No Vacation, allow me to introduce you to veronicavon.
Upon further research, the group’s branding is delightfully out there. Each of the handful of singles they’ve released as a group features a peculiar object on a bright pastel background, which feels like Wes Anderson’s style of quirky. They even have an OnlyFans account with the username “vvsohot,” where they claim to post their most wholesome content (can’t confirm this).
veronicavon’s latest single “Could’ve Tried” has nearly 20,000 Spotify streams two weeks following its release, boosted by an add to the prestigious Fresh Finds: Indie playlist. A simple kicking drum and a wicked bassline underscores lead singer Xuan Nguyen’s delightful, breathy vocals, as she muses about dreams of seeing her name in “big old shiny lights.”
