We are super excited to announce our latest signing — Valley Palace. To celebrate the news, Valley Palace released its summer-approved single, “Friend.” Available for streaming everywhere, you can also enjoy the accompanying video created by Athena Carrera.
The project of Fresno-based singer/songwriter Nathan Taylor, Valley Palace started in 2019. Taylor is a self-admitted daydreamer, and the wispy sentimentalism that comes with wishing and hoping for something more is apparent in his dreamy pop music. Inspired by films from the ‘80s and ‘90s like Pretty in Pink, Can’t Hardly Wait, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Valley Palace takes an optimistic and endearingly honest look at life, chronicling his own coming-of-age period as a teenager entering their early twenties.
Produced with Jackson Phillips of Day Wave, “Friend” is Taylor’s reminder to you to “just be yourself and stay true to who you are. At the same time, don’t have a huge ego and try to stay on the humble side.”
Stay tuned for more news on Valley Palace. Until then, join us in listening to “Friend” on repeat.
Today, Wilkes-Barre hardcore band One Step Closer have announced their debut full-length, This Place You Know, due out September 24th . Since their start only a few years ago the young PA-based band have been steadily gaining momentum with a passionate and anthemic style of hardcore that's made them stand out from the pack. On This Place You Know the band fulfills that promise and builds on it with their most urgent and compelling set of songs to date.
To mark the announcement One Step Closer have teamed with Revolver Magazine to premiere their music video for lead single "Pringle Street" along with an interview with vocalist Ryan Savitski. The dynamic new song highlights One Step Closer's knack for melody as they incorporate hints of '90s emo influences without sacrificing hardcore bite.
