VIDEO PREMIERE: VALEN “I’LL BE WAITING FOR YOU”

February 15th, 2018

Valen is a singer/songwriter newly settled in L.A. and you can consider this video her showstopping official introduction. "I'll Be Waiting For You" is a hazy slow-burning heartbreaker of a song, with 80s pop hooks drifting through up-close-and-personal bedroom-style production, and that makes the video by Growlers-embedded director/cinematographer/videographer Taylor Bonin and producer Danny Rose especially fitting. See for yourself—Valen might be singing into her mirror, or she might be singing right to you. She'll perform at the Moroccan Lounge on Wed., Mar. 7, before some west coast dates and a stint with Broncho on Fri., Mar. 23, at the Echo and on Sat., Mar. 24, at the Wayfarer in Costa Mesa. Complete tour dates below!

VIDEO PREMIERE: CURRENT JOYS “MY NIGHTS ARE MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN YOUR DAYS”

February 14th, 2018

Current Joys is Surf Curse's Nick Rattigan, and his coming A Different Age project is actually something different: a visual album that matches original video to his original music to create a series of affecting short films somewhere between meditation, narrative and quasi-semi-maybe autobiography. His newest is the found-footage-style "My Nights Are More Beautiful Than Your Days," which starts as a bristly VHS-fi slice-of-life but somehow slowly sinks into a subtle but suffocating sense of tragedy, thanks to the uneasy contrast between Nick's especially desolate music and the innocent imagery. Explains Nick:
