REVIEWS

“An essential listen for fans of David Lynch & for anyone whose fingers are always on the pulse of new music” – BUST

“The lo-fi Toronto band’s David Lynchian inspired video demands respect and belief in women. – Vallens’ debut album, a dark aura of lo-fi rock led by singer-songwriter Robyn Phillips that explores a myriad of women’s issues including sexual, physical, and communicative consent” – NOISEY

“Vallens wants you to believe women – the album deals with a significant amount of heavy material including, but not limited to, addiction, sexual and physical consent, and death” – DAILY VICE

“From its melancholy start to its fantastic finish, Consent is a twisted fever dream truly evoking the band’s namesake” – Album Of The Week /NOW

“the type of record one should listen to with eyes closed, to fully allow the mind to be swept away on a journey that both delights and disturbs, in the most enchanting of ways” – 8/10 EXCLAIM!

“Consent is layered in a cloudy haze of dusky guitars over mysterious melodies, dreamy synthesizers seemingly taken from the lost tapes of a David Lynch film score, and shadowy, post punk grooves” – INTERVIEW / CBC RADIO3

“Vallens’ dark and smoky sound – definitely has a certain Black Lodge je ne sais quoi” – BROOKLYN VEGAN



TENNESSE HAZE

Recorded with Jeff Berner of Psychic TV at Galuminum Foil in Brooklyn, NY and at Toronto’s Candle Recording with Josh Korody (Beliefs).

REVIEWS

“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.” – NOISEY
