JUNO nominated, alternative-pop band, Valley have unveiled their shimmering sophomore EP, Last Birthday. Featuring the singles Like 1999, SOCIETY, Tempo and Oh shit…are we in love?, the EP arrives alongside three new tracks and a visual for Cure.
Across the collection of songs, the four-piece deliver their most considered body of work to date, with the release woven together with the main conceptual threads of love and enduring connection. The band explore the many facets of these themes, including romantic and platonic relationships, creating the perfect complimentary EP to sucks to see you doing better. Mesmerising harmonies float above faultless production, with frontman Rob Laska's enticing vocals bringing the bands signature bouncy bedroom-pop sonics to life.
Speaking of the release, the band share: “We kept the production as true to our sound as possible by approaching our musical decisions with a minimalistic, and intentional overture. The lyrical decisions were a blend between what phonetically felt right, and what provided a listener with the most deliberate narration. This is the most effortless, yet intentional body of work we’ve been able to create yet.”
Made up of Laska, Karah James, Mickey Brandolino and Alex DiMaur, Valley formed in 2014, with their debut EP, Car Test, arriving the following year. Since then, the four-piece have four EP's under their belt, a string of shimmering singles, and a legion of fans. Valley will return to the stage next month, taking to the stage at Wunderbus Festival in Columbus, OH, and Bottlerock Festival in Napa Valley, CA, followed by 17-date North American tour supporting COIN.
