Hot New Pop Alert: "Verite "Strange Enough"

Vérité-Strange-Enough-2014-1500x1500-

Hailing from New York City, newcomer Verite serves up an impressive pop sound that will capture you from start to finish. I first heard her demos a few weeks ago and was instantly blown away by her powerful and deeply emotive delivery.  

Whilst working hard in the studio with the producer Elliot Jacobson on her debut EP, Verite is sharing “Strange Enough” to give us a taste of what’s to come. Fans of Lana Del Rey, Ellie Goulding and other pensive pop will be in for a huge treat.

The singer (who still works as a waitress in a local Manhattan restaurant) explains in a press release that she wrote the song to contemplate “all the questions I’d ask myself about my relationship, and why we bother ourselves to try to make things work sometimes.” 

She adds, “The song goes back and forth between the nostalgia of what was. The reality of how things shift as time moves on, and how ultimately we romanticize moments that are fleeting.” 

P.S. Vérité is French for “truth” that is pretty darn perfect in this case.
