Valley soundtrack summer heartache with latest single "Have A Good Summer (Without Me)"
Alternative-pop band Valley, consisting of Rob Laska, Mickey Brandolino, Alex Dimauro, and Karah James, has released their latest single, "Have A Good Summer (Without Me)," through Capitol Records/Universal Music Canada. The track serves as the fourth single off their upcoming sophomore album, Lost In Translation, which is set to release on June 23. "Have A Good Summer (Without Me)" captures the unique ache of heartbreak, a feeling that contradicts the sunny expectations of the season. Drawing inspiration from artists like Lana Del Rey, Regina Spektor, and Taylor Swift, Valley interprets the longing associated with summer break-ups through their own lens. With lyrics like "If you fall for somebody new, do everything we used to do, I hope it gets you thinking about me," the song strikes a chord for anyone who has experienced the pain of separation during the summer months. Karah James, vocalist of Valley, describes the track as a portrayal of loving someone so deeply that you have to let them go.
The release of "Have A Good Summer (Without Me)" follows three previously released tracks, adding to the anticipation surrounding their upcoming album. Among these tracks are "Throwback Tears," which introduced the album announcement and was covered by Kerala folk/indie group When Chai Met Toast, and "Good, but not together," accompanied by a live performance video. Additionally, "Break For You" has become a fan favorite during their North American tour and even charted on the Canada Top 50 Viral chart on Spotify. Together, the three previously released tracks have already accumulated over 10 million global streams.
As Valley wraps up the final dates of their North American 'Lost In Translation' headlining tour, the band has received overwhelming praise from audiences for their new songs seamlessly blending into their catalog of danceable love songs. This summer, they are set to embark on a tour across Southeast Asia and Australia, headlining shows for their international fanbase. Notably, they will perform in Thailand for the Road To Sonic Bang Music Festival alongside LANY, ADOY, and Burnout Syndromes. Excitingly, Valley has also announced their support role for Dermot Kennedy on six newly announced dates of The Sonder Tour, playing at arena venues across Canada this fall. Fans can find the updated list of tour dates and purchase tickets on Valley's website.
With each release, Valley continues to captivate audiences with their infectious blend of alternative-pop and heartfelt lyrics. As the countdown to Lost In Translation's release draws closer, fans eagerly anticipate diving into the band's new sonic world.
