Roxanne Clifford used to lead Veronica Falls, the very good UK indie-pop group. These days, under the name Patience, she makes spacey, expansive synthpop with a serious Italo-disco influence. “The Church,” Clifford’s first single as Patience, is a warm, gooey song — just as melodic and retro-inclined as Veronica Falls were, but done in a completely different genre. In the video, we see ancient-looking VHS-style footage of Clifford in a seaside town. Check it out below, via Gorilla Vs. Bear.
