Exclusive song premiere: "Starsong" by The Valery Trails

The Valery Trails
21 January 2014

Yeah, we’re diggin’ this tune, and not just because it reminds us of “Pretty In Pink” by Psychedelic Furs. OK, maybe that’s the main reason we like it, but we also get a Social Distortion vibe; that’s cool, too. And hey — e-bow solo!

The Valery Trails is an intercontinental collaboration between Brisbane, Australia-born, Houston, Texas-based guitarist Andrew Bower and his bass playing brother Sean and drummer Dan McNaulty, back home in Brisbane. The band’s second album, Buffalo Speedway, due out April 29, was mixed in Brooklyn by Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Sebadoh, Spacehog), and the album was also mastered for digital and vinyl in Brooklyn by Joe Lambert (Local Natives, Animal Collective, Deerhunter and many more).
