JACK VALERO SHARES THE NEW SINGLE ‘FORM OVER FUNCTION’ – WATCH THE VIDEO HERE
‘Form Over Function’ finds Jack lamenting a love that never was, his voice shimmering with equal parts pain and power in a modern take on the torch song tradition – his conversational lyrics set to a very English take on Americana. The gentle strum of his acoustic guitar combines with mournful piano to build an hypnotic elegance over the song’s six-minute journey. Jack’s opening words immediately set the tone of overwhelming loneliness as he sings, “Walked into the crowd to be alone.” Its hook is similarly affecting: “If you ain’t gonna see me tonight, there really ain’t much I can do… but I never thought I’d leave here without your love.”

ADAM HOPPER shares debut single ‘Beauty In Sadness’ | out today (Nov 8th)
Cutting his teeth in recently defunct indie-punk band Blanketman, the musician caught the eye of Rolling Stone, NME, and BBC Radio 1, with Hopper now looking more inwardly for his new solo project.

Concentrating on poignant, wry lyricism and catchy melodies, he creates his own unique brand of wide-eyed, mellow alternative pop music.

Vallis Alps return with climactic new single “Set It Off, Set It Right”
Reflective of the leaps taken in life-altering decisions, and the myriad of emotions that come with following them through, “Set It Off, Set It Right” is the sonic manifestation of momentum; a mantra to trust the process. Hand-claps stir alongside sparkling synths, springboarded by booming percussion to boost Parissa’s vocals, shifting in and out of focus, with a similar balance of intention and passion through all elements of the creative as James Blake, Mount Kimbie or London Grammar.
