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.” – VALLEY
VALLEY is an act that Rock the Pigeon has been keeping an eye on for a couple of years now. The Toronto-based group started as an indie band, worked extremely hard, wrote dozens and dozens of songs, toured and built a following, and found a unique sound. They eventually were met with their dream of getting signed to a major record label. The band formed after their two original separate bands got double booked for studio time. They took this double booking as an opportunity to create something fresh.
Now they are VALLEY, signed to Universal Music Group Canada and out with an alt-pop anthem titled “Push For Yellow (Shelter).” The song is driven by duel vocals, rhythmic piano chords, and pulsating guitars that groove over shuffling drums. The melody of the song is top notch from the verse to the chorus and could fit well on playlists with acts like Coldplay, The 1975, and CHVRCHES.
VALLEY’s new song explodes just before the minute mark and proves how fitting the band is for radio. We follow VALLEY to the top. Enjoy the alt-pop anthem on Spotify now:
“’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.”
