VALLEY BOY Release New Single ‘Sad Girl’
Tinged with a retro vibe and swimming in nostalgia, Sad Girl is the newest in-your-feelings track from Valley Boy.
Valley Boy’s story starts long before their first piece of music came out. The duo met in their middle school P.E. class, before forging a friendship from their shared love of music and similar family situations, and this long-standing connection evidences itself in the seamless coherency of the music that they are now producing. Bringing a woozy indie sound, it’s hypnotic with its fuzzy guitars and relaxed beats, and it makes time feel like it’s slowing down when you listen to them.
Their newest single Sad Girl builds upon their soothing sound as light vocals delicately tread upon lush electronics. The slow tempo of the track allows for you to fully indulge in the richness of the melodies and the wonderful textures swimming around you, while the intensely poignant lyricism strikes a chord in its lament.
Speaking more on the track, the duo reveals:
This song began after receiving my second ‘we should never talk again’ text from someone I had started seeing. Change can be scary, and I think she and I were both very aware that we would be taking a big step were we to begin dating. That would mean saying goodbye to the safety of the known, even if what we both knew was isolation, disappointment, and a pessimist’s view of life and love. The devil you know vs. the devil you don’t, right?
