Valley Announces New Album “Lost In Translation”, Shares New Song “Throwback Tears”
Toronto-based alt-pop band Valley, consisting of Rob Laska (vocals), Michael Brandolino (guitar), Alex Dimauro (bass) and Karah James (drums), announced their sophomore album “Lost In Translation” would be released on June 23, 2023.
It is their first album in four years since the 2019 debut album “MAYBE”.
“Between MAYBE and now, we've done more soul-searching together than ever,” the band lead vocalist Rob Laska said of the album. “We've traveled the world, we've accomplished a lot we never thought was possible. We've followed every single path to get nowhere and everywhere. It's a very caught in a thought and seeking album. It poses more questions than answers. It's honest, it's confusing, it's pop, it's nostalgic, it's black and white, its colorful, it's unpredictable, it's simple, it's Valley, Lost In Translation.”
From the album, the band released the first single called “Throwback Tears” on January 12, 2023.
The track was written by Michael Brandolino, Karah McGillivray, Robert Sowinski, Alexander DiMauro, John Htun, Andrew Bertalan, and Mathijs Kriebel. Produced by Valley.
- Rob Laska said of the song, “Leading with 'Throwback Tears' as the first single always felt right. It has cheeky new year, new me energy. Sad yet playful, which we always gravitate to with our production and lyrics. It very much feels like the door swinging open to a breakbeat and us asking you to step into the new sonic world we've created around Lost In Translation,”
Drummer Karah James added, “'Throwback Tears' describes the moment of relief when you've actually moved on…but actually. It's the moment you build a bridge, one snotty Kleenex at a time, and get over it to find a pot of gold at the end filled with self-love, growth and epiphany. 'Throwback Tears' is an ode to taking control of our own sadness and defeat and never looking back. It's the cheeky 'last words' to that person that broke your heart, they wanted space so you went to the moon.”
