Music Monday: Valencia, ARMNHMR, Last Heroes, Gavin Hailey, SNAILS, and Sorry Girls

Fresh onto the scene, pop-duo Valencia present their debut single, “Light of You” alongside producer Ian Kimmel out today across all digital streaming and retail platforms. The electro-pop track showcases the airy vocals and musical chemistry between California girl, Jadeyn Madsen and British heartthrob, Lou Courts who together have discovered their passion for music and performing under the alias, Valencia.

Although the summer months might be winding down, Valencia has found the perfect track to keep the warm vibes resonating and the dance floors sweltering. “Light Of You” which was co-written by the duo and produced by newcomer, Ian Kimmel is one of those songs that instantly catches your attention. The electronic dance beat drifts you away to those memories of the ultimate summer music festival, while the lyrics capture a sense of summer love and desire.

 

LA duo ARMNHMR unveils sonic precision on their Dim Mak debut “Save You Now,” featuring duetting vocals from Rico & Miella. The soaring production takes listeners on an emotive journey through expectant build-ups, melodic interludes, and ecstatic drops.

“Save You Now” marks the first single off ARMNHMR’s forthcoming debut album, The Free World. Delivering a storyline that follows the struggles and unison of two characters through intimacy and togetherness, the duo introduces listeners to The Free World through a love song in its purest form.

 

Last Heroes return to Ophelia Records for not only their own debut EP – but for the first full-length EP to be released on the imprint from an artist other than label head honcho Seven Lions. The Moments EP is a 4 track foray into melodic bass, featuring 3 stunning vocal performances from Satellite Empire, Lauren Martinez, and Luma, as well as an instrumental title track to wrap it all up. 

Hailing from Colorado, Last Heroes is comprised of Garrett Lucero and Brian Helander. Coming together in 2016 after each began their own individual projects years before, what started as a collaborative track evolved into so much more. Since their inception in 2016, Last Heroes have gone on to create their own cinematic sound inspired by the likes of Seven Lions, Hans Zimmer, and many more. 

 

Gavin Haley is delivering an acoustic duet of “Show Me” with Canadian singer/songwriter Sara Diamond. “Show Me” is a resounding reflection on love, and the stripped-back version brings the poignant lyricism into focus through the duo’s mesmerizing harmonies. The acoustic track is being released alongside a live video of the duo performing at Los Angeles’ Kingsize Soundlabs.

After being fans of each other for quite some time, Gavin and Sara decided that an acoustic duet version of “Show Me” would be the perfect foray into collaborating together. Just like Gavin, Sara sees music as a healing tool that inspires others to look inward and appreciate the myriad of feelings that come along with being human. On the recording process, Sara writes that it was a “warm and friendly” experience.

 

Two of dubstep’s heaviest mainstays, SNAILS and Subtronics, have crafted a mammoth collaboration out now on Slugz Music. “SNAILCLOPS” has appeared in both artists’ recent live sets, and in SNAILS’ SNAILEDIT Mix Vol. 7

SNAILS is on somewhat of a tirade – from his latest singles “Jackhammer” with Krimer and “RKO,” to the announcement of his World of Slime tour, to the newly revealed music video for “Snailelphant” with Wooli. SNAILS will be in Atlanta Dec. 19, 2019.

 

“Dirty Laundry” is the new single from Montreal duo Sorry Girls, who released their debut LP Deborah via Arbutus Records on October 18th. The follow up to their first single “One That You Want,” “Dirty Laundry” pulls gated reverb and ethereal synths into the present-day, both sonically and thematically. In the band’s own words, “‘Dirty Laundry’ is about tackling the mundane to make way for bigger dreams. How the fog of putting off emotional work or even just day to day tasks can obscure you from your potential. And how easy it is to get stuck there. It’s meant as an anthem, a pump-up jam for the anxious-minded.”

Following the release of Deborah, Sorry Girls tour North America, including West Coast support dates for Devon Walsh. This will be their first time performing songs from Deborah live. Sorry Girls will perform in Atlanta at the Drunken Unicorn on Dec. 4.
