"This Music Wins"

Oh Verona are a newly formed piano pop band based in London who are garnering increased attention around the area with their intelligent, soul-infused pop music. They formed as a progression of the acoustic duo Milltown's Grace (MYSPACE) six months ago, and Jamie Ross (vocals and keys), Owen McCormack (guitar), Alex Ford (bass) and James Dean (drums) have been playing at some of London's top venues since then. They make sunny and nostalgic pop songs, as the band put it 'standing firm against the rising tide of synth driven indie.' Their two recorded tracks 'Time' and 'River' are both strong and distinctive - 'Time' begins with vocals and piano and, wasting no 'time' at all develops into a cheerful and endearing pop song. 'River' originates from far colder beginnings to do a similar kind of thing, keeping back a sinister verse before dropping in a piano-driven sing-along chorus.

You can catch this new band live at 93 Feet East, Shoreditch on 30th November 2009 for their EP support show. I'll keep services updated on any more live dates and the full EP release, but for now, check out their tracks over at myspace, and watch the space right here for a download.

"Chasing Safety"

North London soul power poppers Oh Verona! are here with their defence against the growing population of synth-indie to bring you some back-to-basics clever songwriting and catchy vocals. They have taken things back to simplicity, with the track starting out with a humble piano, before the band join in and add some really creative embellishments to the whole thing, turning this into a really catchy track.

This single is part of their upcoming EP, due out in a couple of months. They also have 2 dates in London, one on the 30th October @ Monto Water Rats and another a month later on the 30th November @ 93 Feet East. Clearly these guys are going to cause waves in the world of power-pop, especially if this track is a sign of things to come.

"Clearly these guys are going to cause waves in the world of power-pop" (Chasing Safety)

Oh Verona formed in 2009, expanding from Jamie and Owen's previous acoustic duo, Milltown's Grace. Maintaining their songwriting sensibilities, they have now added intricate bass lines (via Al, a jazz bassist) and powerful drums (via Deano, a rock drummer). Melding together these different musical backgrounds has allowed Oh Verona to evolve a sound which is completely their own.
