Veronica releases the angelic ‘The Lake Of The Dead’

London-based artist Veronica, is making waves in the local scene after a moving to the city from Milan, Italy, in 2021. Since, she’s supported the likes of Lina Makoul, Michael Malarkey, and David Keenan, captivating audience with a profound personality and vibrant storytelling.

Veronica is self-produced, pursuing creative control and challenging the male-dominated industry, allowing her to record her intricate layers of vocal harmony that form her signature ethereal sound. This attitude has also played well into her live performances, with the artist quickly adapting between intimate and large settings, whilst still giving a staggering display of talent.

Her latest release is ‘The Lake Of The Dead’, an emotionally charged and capturing new single. Built on the back drop of a muted piano, with melancholic chords being contrasted with a optimistic and bouncy rhythm, the plucky percussion elements reinforce the faux-idyllic story. The vocal performances are undoubtedly the shining star of this track, expansive, angelic harmonies echo the ghostly atmosphere, while the lead line draws us in with evocative depth in both lyricism and performance.

Veronica shares, “I wrote this about this song about a weird dream I had: me and my family lived in a village where death happened in a peculiar way. When it’s your time to die, you feel it and you have to go to the lake and let yourself drown. Everyone was ok with this but one day it was my turn and I didn’t want to go.

My family couldn’t understand why and just said “goodbye” to me, after moments of desperation I decided to surrender, and let myself go and as soon as I died I was transported towards a white light and I was born again. I was very haunted by this dream so I stayed up all night and wrote and produced this song in four hours, building it on the piano riff that had been stuck in my head for days.”

With 2023 shaping up to be a pivotal year for the artist, we can’t wait to see what comes next.
