"Her songwriting brings together the diaristic and the mythical. Her voice is full of grown-up depth and subtleties....and she has the guitar virtuosity for arrangements that are resonant, intricate and propulsive." - Jon Pareles, The New York Times
"...her voice is the headliner: Mic'd so close you can smell the cigarettes on her breath, it's sultry, wise, rueful and unapologetic, connecting a 1960s singer-songwriter tradition to the ache of the now." - Rolling Stone
"Marling's songs dig well beyond the everyday, with each sung in a wise, dusky, brooding voice that always seems in control of its surroundings." - NPR
Los Angeles's Valley Queen are thrilled to release their first-ever EP, Destroyer, today. Lead singer and songwriter "Natalie Carol presides over ambling Americana jams that positively soar," said NPR Music upon including the EP's single "Stars Align" in their SXSW Austin 100, which you can find HERE.
Filling out their sound is Neil Wogensen with bass/vocals, Gerry Doot on drums and Shawn Morones with vocals and guitar. Also available for the first time today is the lyric video for the band's delicate and thoughtful song from the EP, "Purtian".
"Classic California country, filled with golden guitar tones employed in the search for salvation." - Stereogum
"It's easy to compare Carol to Karen O or Grace Potter as she sings with a liquid drawl, elongating phrasing and punching up phrases so that they hit with the power and purity of a drunken stupor." - Consequence of Sound
"Carol has stayed true to her roots while embracing the psychedelia of California rock - and making some damn good music along the way." - Village Voice
