Electric Valentine Unleash Melodic Dubstep Track 'Albatross' for Free Download
New Album "Circuitry" Out July 16
Get ready for a hard dose of melodic dub! LA-based EDM pop group Electric Valentine
are giving away a free download of their new single ‘Albatross’
in celebration of their third upcoming studio album Circuity
, set for release on July 16.
Listen to ‘Albatross’ and it’ll come as no surprise that this isn’t the first time Electric Valentine have dabbled in Dubstep, as band member Chris Qualls helped co-write the OWSLA release ‘Dying’ with top dub producer Kill The Noise.
Lead singer Lauren Baird’s haunting vocals and heart-wrenching lyrics on ‘Albatross’ draw you in, chew you up and spit you back out again. Combine them with Electric Valentine’s crisp production, live guitar and drums, organ synths and a wobbly breakdown, and you have melodic dubstep perfection.
In case the moody vibes of ‘Albatross’ haven’t left you feeling sentimental enough, Electric Valentine have paired the release with an equally heavy music video--a story of toxic love and a drug-fueled relationship gone too far. Watch the story of a broken heart below.
