A very short review from me….these ladies rock!!!……and here is the promo and the viddy…..airplay on next weeks podcast…..
“Valentiine are Vanessa (guitar/vocals), Erica (bass/vocals) and Shelly (drums/vocals), 3 girls who reincarnate the heavy 90’s into something beautiful – dirty pop hooks drowned in the honesty of screaming vocals with seething cheerleader harmonies over the top. Their live shows fill the room with a dark beauty and simple melodies that’ll rent a room in your head and refuse to leave.
After 3 years earning their musical stripes, crowding out Melbourne’s most loved dirty little pubs and playing the likes of St. Kilda Fest and the Cherry Rock festival, they left their iconic combi van behind and in September 2012 set off on a European tour covering 22 shows throughout UK, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, including sets at OxJam Festival in Leicester and Grungapolooza festival in Leipzig, Germany.
Their European jaunt caught the eye and ears of both Integrity Records (Million Dead, Reuben, Miniature Dinosaurs) and a UK manager.
Vanessa: “Having the label chosen by Kat Bjelland for her post-Babes In Toyland releases come in for us was so cool. We were like’ Where do we sign? And who’s buying the beers?'”
‘Love Like’ is the first single taken from the eponymous debut album, of which Australia’s Beat Magazine says:
“The three young Melbourne ladies have taken one for the team here and smashed it out of the park on their scorching debut album. It’s proper, raw, gruelling femme-rock”
‘Love Like’ is out on April 8th, through iTunes, Amazon and other reputable download stores. The album and a further UK tour follow in June.
