Far from formulaic, these songs appear as a passionate stream of consciousness, a jam, a collective pursuit of creative freedom & therapeutic expression.
The song takes advantage of the entire musical structure of songwriting, utilising each moment to imprint ideas & a certain mood onto those who hear it.
Your experience will dictate the way it affects you; that’s how real art works. That’s what Alien Skin gives us, time & time again. This album is stunning.
A compelling visual journey that again reinforces the realness & grit that The Valium so effectively & stylishly encapsulate within their songs.
The classic sound of power-pop-dance fusion from way back when. The energy is intense & upbeat, the vocal is bold & passionate at every instance.
A strong introduction to the Chicago based singer & songwriter. The more you listen, the more the melody, lyrics & energy imprint their good vibes on you.
They’ve built an impressive & loyal following over the years thanks to great song writing, unforgettable live shows, and ever approachable attitudes.
The song has the distorted thickness of authentic blues rock & roll with the perfectly fitting level of emotion & passion that make the genre what it is.
The skill & satisfying crunch of any great folk rock track. The riffs have a simplicity that lets you fully access the sentiment & soul of the song.
A blissfully ambient collection of sounds & riffs. A dramatic & emotional work of art that reinforces those underlying ideas with every moment that passes.
Something a little bit different, a breakaway from the political norm & a recording that lays bare a more personal & somewhat vulnerable side to the band.
A shining example of the beauty of reflective songwriting & the power of this when placed alongside a somewhat more classic, mellow rap vibe.
