VALLEY is a pop band from Toronto whose ambitions are even bigger than their sound. Forged from two bands who were accidentally double-booked for studio time, the born-and-raised Canadians seized the opportunity in disguise and began developing what would ultimately become one of the most refreshing, engaging, and promising new bands of the decade.
The immediate Top 200 chart success of VALLEY’s debut EP “Car Test” catapulted the band to sold out shows, festival appearances, and a nomination in the Toronto Independent Music Awards, establishing them as a worthy compatriot of influences such as The 1975, St Lucia, Arkells, and Walk The Moon. Their second EP, “This Room Is White,” dropped on June 3 and represents enormous growth for VALLEY in both sound and stature.
The band garnered Top 20 placement on Spotify’s coveted U.S. and Global Viral 50 playlists, features on several blogs, and shared the stage with A Great Big World among others.
The timeless, anthemic songcraft for which VALLEY has become known unequivocally marks them as the next great North American band to watch.
“’Push for Yellow(Shelter)’ has been somewhat of a record word piece that we’ve repeatedly reminded ourselves of throughout the creative process. As much as this song talks about the want to escape from what you’re dealing with, it also touches upon the feeling of being stuck in the in-between, the feeling of not having the control to slow down-yet everything around you is constant noise to speed up. Sonically this song also means a lot to us. We sampled a lot of sounds we have collected throughout the past two years of travel, which are spaced throughout the rest of the album.”
