Valley Palace's latest single "Patch" finds Taylor continuing to hone his vibrant combination of widescreen '80s sonics and modern bedroom pop charm, offering another welcoming glimpse into Valley Palace's world.
Taylor, a talented multi-instrumentalist, performs all of the shimmering guitars, winding bass lines, and propulsive drumming in Valley Palace's music--creating an effervescent foundation for and his warm voice and irresistible melodies. After writing "Patch" and Valley Palace's previous single "Friend" in his bedroom studio, Taylor teamed with Day Wave mastermind Jackson Phillips to record and co-produce the track, resulting in an irresistible balance of studio shine and homemade magic.
Since 2019 Valley Palace has been assembling an impressive catalog of self-released guitar pop gems that includes a run standalone singles and the Pastel Mood EP. Now all of these earlier songs, plus "Patch" and "Friend," have been brought together for the first time on one physical release with the Collection 1 cassette--available now.
