VALLEY wrote and self-produced the acclaimed 2016 EP ‘This Room Is White’, amassing over 10 million streams, as well as garnering radio and TV placements for indie pop hit “Swim”. Now VALLEY returns with the lead single “Closer To The Picture,” off their major label debut album ‘Maybe’. “Closer To The Picture,” written and produced by Valley in collaboration with Andy Seltzer (Maggie Rogers, Tor Miller, Penguin Prison), deals with the cycle of anxiety and self-reflection inherent in the deafening digital noise of 21st century living.
The concept revolves around putting the audience in the shoes of the introvert of the party. The kind of person who hangs out in the corner with the dog while others are getting drunk and making fools of themselves. Many of the visual references came from films set in the early 2000’s like Perks of Being a Wallflower, Lady Bird and The Rules of Attraction.
