2012 was one hell of a year for of Verona. From non-stop college radio love, to gaining props from the likes of KROQ, The Examiner, Ryan Tedder, and many others, the futuristic electro-grunge trio’s debut album The White Apple has been scoring some huge acclaim since it was released. Lead singer/songwriter Mandi Perkins’ Cranberries-esque power vocals lead each track through an unforgettable journey. Tracks like the hauntingly beautiful single, ”Dark In My Imagination”, as well as the energized opener “Castles” helped solidify the record’s position as Indie Album of the Year for the writer’s at Lemonade Magazine. Gaining an award in the company of artists like Ellie Goulding and Maroon 5 is not a bad way to close out the year.
Despite the enormous amount of effort the band put in during 2012, that doesn’t mean they are slowing down going into 2013. They’ll be riding this momentum right onto satellite radio in January as well as recording a video for “Dark In My Imagination”. Keep an eye on the charts and your ears wide open- 2013 is going to be an even bigger year for of Verona.
