His faith and fortitude are tested like never before, and the narrative of the album will reveal whether that pressure crushes him or produces a diamond.”

Allison Lorenzen Releases Stunning Video for “Vale” Featuring Midwife (Indie Rock, Dream Pop)

Inspired by Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road” – a meditation on both love and violence, Lorenzen’s haunting voice and Madeline Johnston’s (Midwife) heavy, ringing guitar find a striking middle distance between the novel’s polarity.
