Toronto band Valley, recently released their new single “Closer To The Picture.” The track was written and produced by the band along with Andy Seltzer (Maggie Rogers, Tor Miller, Penguin Prison). VALLEY is comprised of Rob (vocals), Mike (guitar), Alex (bass), and Karah (drums) met when a recording studio double-booked their sessions and encouraged them to try playing together.
Valley on “Closer To The Picture”:
“It’s an anthem for the outcasts,” the band says. “Being the kid at the party who just hangs out with the dog.” That sensation of feeling isolated in a crowd of friends is the thread that weaves throughout the album. While the music itself remains mostly uptempo and major key, the songs themselves speak to a generational malaise from the falling in and out of touch with friends who increasingly exist only through a digital medium. In “Closer To The Picture,” Rob cries out and asks, “Do you ever think about your future?” It’s the climax of the song and merely the introduction to a new VALLEY who find themselves “questioning life, questioning who you are or what your purpose is. We’ve all been there.”
