EP review: VERITY WHITE – Distilled

VERITY WHITE - Distilled

www.veritywhite.com [Release date 08.07.22]

Latest release from singer & songwriter Verity White who is joined by husband Alex White (guitar, synths, drums & sax). Musically Verity White draws her influences from the likes of Skunk Anansie, Paramore and electronica. Lyrically the EP scores highly as Verity bases them on own struggles with ADHD and mental health, along with an aim to bring people together and connect them through openness and hope.

As Verity explains, ‘We worked to find our new sound as a two-piece and to ‘distill’ our essence into it. We’re excited to be taking a more electronic route for this EP, something that we’ve always loved, and to blend this with the alt-rock riffs that we also adore.”

Six songs of which ‘Broken Promises’ stands out with an addictive indie rock hook, closely followed by ‘Another Angle’ where the guitar and electronica effects fuse to good effect. ‘Just Try It’ reminded me of All About Eve in the vocals. Again another good mix of guitar and electronics. ‘Road To Nowhere’ has some fine programmed backing musically tapping into Skunk Anansie.

Verity White has successfully changed her musical approach creating an intriguing mix of electronica with a dollop of indie guitar. ***
