I’m so predictable. Is there any way I wouldn’t fall in love with Verite?
Verite is not French, but New York based singer Kelsey Byrne who obviously just fancied a little slice of European (or at worst Quebec) and a much more popstar name in her life. She’s been making music for years, and after studying teamed up with songwriters behind Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles to work on her music.
Weekend is utterly glorious. I love the way the verse bubbles happily along, already as a great pop song, only to explode with absolute joy once the incredible chorus hits.
