New York native VÉRITÉ’s “Strange Enough” seems a strong fit for a landscape that now counts BROODS among its rising pop stars. Cinematic electronics back an emotional core—“Strange Enough,” as the singer puts it, “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.”

Personal but far from bedroom music, “Strange Enough” eschews hushed intimacy for a sweeping, heart-on-sleeve emotional display given life by dynamic production and a mostly restrained performance that soars when the moment commands. Listen below.
