Valley Releases New Song “Oh shit…are we in love?”
- Toronto-based alt-pop band Valley, consisting of Rob Laska, Karah James, Mickey Brandolino and Alex DiMauro, released a new song “Oh shit…are we in love?” from their upcoming EP “Last Birthday”.
The band wrote and co-produced the song with Jorgen Odegard. The accompanying music video was directed by sunsetsahil.
Rob Laska said of the song, “'Oh shit…are we in love?' In a way feels like Valleys first love song while simultaneously playing the role of an end of summer anthem. We find it's sometimes tricky as songwriters to write about love in a form that feels honest but not too kitschy or on the nose. We knew we wanted to write something that people can really sing with us live and make it a special moment. Lyrically, 'Oh shit' is about the realization that what you've been looking for the whole time has been right in front of you. The happiness of finding your person, whether that's a significant other or a best friend or your dog.”
- He continued, “It was the height of the pandemic, and we were writing over zoom at a cabin we booked for a few weeks. I remember life in general was at a standstill and we wanted to make something that felt uplifting and reflective of summers spent in our hometown before some of us moved away. Jorgen sent over that piano loop you hear at the start of the song and the drum groove which felt so sonically fresh for us. We were instantly hooked, and the song pretty much wrote itself! The start of the song also features a voice note of us figuring out what the chorus melody and lyrics will be which felt fun to start with! The chorus of 'Oh Shit' really feels so special to us and it's such a sing along. We cannot wait to get back on tour and get the whole crowd to sing it with us!”
The new EP is set to be released on October 1, 2021.
