Irish alt-rock band VERA release brilliant second single

Music Review | 5th July, 2024 Vera Vera

Vera is a band that not only boasts some of Northern Ireland's finest musicians but is the vehicle for the incredible vocals of Sarah Toner.

Since her return to Northern Ireland, after a successful musical theatre career in London, the artist has been developing her own songwriting with the help of her producer/manager Declan Legge (Jealous of the Birds, Atlantic Records).

The latest track Reasons blends a modern Indie sound with elements of groove and soul, retro pop, and rock all underpinned by the raw and powerful vocals.

Filled with style, drama and a healthy dose of sarcasm, Sarah's lyrics cover every possible pitfall of modern love presenting a refreshingly cynical version of being a hopeless romantic.

Discussing the track the Sarah says;

Reasons is a big, noisy, explosive representation of the barrage of excuses we're up against trying to date in the modern world. The unimaginative and monotonous convictions we give and receive when cutting ties romantically.
It's a confessional of the four members' scarcely credible romantic histories. Trivial, legitimate and sometimes far-fetched, Reasons is a ridiculous catalogue of failed relationships
