VALLENS “Tennessee Haze” video premiere on NOISEY ~ “Directed by fellow Torontonian Shelby Fenlon, the clip finds Vallens mastermind Robyn Phillips wandering through a forest and other nature zones. It’s appropriately soft-focus, and the off-kilter chord changes of the song add to the feeling of dreamy disorientation.

‘Tennessee Haze’ was one of the first Vallens songs recorded,” says Phillips, “The video is inspired by a lot of different things, but it’s emphasis is on the silver lining of the day-to-day, like the lyrics of the song.”

VALLENS “Dark Tunnel” video, directed by Adam Christopher Seward, premiered on BUST Magazine today — “an essential listen for fans of David Lynch’s acclaimed series and for anyone whose fingers are always on the pulse of new music.” – BUST

“The song rides a hypnotic, alt-rock-inclined shoegaze groove for close to four minutes. In that time — Dark Tunnel definitely lives up to its shadowy name” – EXCLAIM!

“I’ve fallen in love with Vallens, a shoegaze band from Toronto, and their music video for “Dark Tunnel.” It is a shadowy mirage through the woods, splashed with glitter and fairy lights.” – ROOKIE

“Vallens s’invite à nos oreilles tel un énième remugle nébuleux et hypnotique émanant d’Ontario” – HARTZINE
