VÉRITÉ is a new electropop project based in NYC - although for some obscure reason this piece of information is not revealed in artist's website and social media pages - lucky we have friends who know! Very little info has leaked about this act - is it actually a band or a solo effort? - but the simple but tasteful video of debut single "Heartbeat" (streaming) gives us a beautiful face and an intriguing song, split between a moody, atmospheric verse and a radio ready pop explosion in the chorus - and that's more than enough for now. This seems like a studio born effort, although Rockwood Music Hall back in December hosted what seems to be the only VÉRITÉ live show to date. An announcement of a new release should be around the corner, since the profile picture of the band's Facebook page was changed a few days ago to an image that looks like the cover of a record entitled "Wild Regrets." - The Deli Magazine


With little more than a 'coming soon' on offer from her Facebook, all we know or sure about the NYC songstress is that she deals in big, unashamedly pop choruses. Debut track 'Heartbeat' is a fine example of her tradde - a bold and catchy-as-hell introduction to her brilliance.

Introducing VÉRITÉ, a brand spanking new pop starlet to massively distract you from whatever it is that you’re doing. The New York based singer has recently dropped this track ‘Heartbeat’ and it’s a gorgeous introduction. We’d like to think we care about our fans, so when VÉRITÉ started following us on twitter we had to find out what she was about. What came next was this fabulous debut. It’s big unadulterated pop music, there’s no shame in admitting it, being able to jam to this makes you an awesome person, there’s nothing to not like. If you say no to this, you’re being pretentious. Justin Bieber is incredible, opinions aside, he is great. As is VÉRITÉ. Looking forward to seeing this pop off. - SelfBlown


VÉRITÉ’s “Heartbeat” has been out for a couple of months now, and we can’t for the life of us figure out why we haven’t caught wind of it until now. It does everything you want it to, and it’s going to be huge once people realize what they’ve been missing out on. The opening of the track has a nice bare-bones beat to it, and the production work is crisp and clean. Then, just when you thought you were in for something mellow, VÉRITÉ opens up with a series of increasingly epic choruses, taking what was already a good song, and making it great.

It’s probably a little premature to start making comparisons with other big names, and we’ll need to hear a couple more releases to get a better idea of what VÉRITÉ’s sound is really like, but this track makes great use of some fantastic influences, and serves as an impressive start. It’s the absence of any unnecessary fluff that really sets it apart from your average attempt at an anthemic track, and the skill with which she laces the vocals into the rest of the song is just masterful. If she continues along this path, it’s not out of the question to assume her music will be able to connect with fans in much the same way that Tove Lo’s or Laura Welsh’s does. We definitely have our fingers crossed for more as a result, and we’ll be making sure we don’t miss any of her stuff that’s yet to come. - HillyDilly

Bio

Who is VÉRITÉ? The question has been on the lips of indie/alt-pop insiders from New York to London since the Brooklyn-based artist’s music began circulating in spring 2014. NME calls "Heartbeat", her debut release, “a bold and catchy-as-hell introduction to her brilliance” while HillyDilly says that she is "going to be huge once people realize what they’ve been missing out on.” Fortunately more will be revealed as VÉRITÉ unveils more music and live shows. Until then, you can keep guessing.
