SONG PICK: Valetta – Irregular Low
At home in Manchester, Valetta just released the bold, beautiful and superbly original “Irregular Low”. The magnificent track simmers ￼￼and swirls, and intensifies, before it dances into a grandiose finale. This is not the work of a newcomer band but clearly the creative output of very skilled musicians, who know their instruments and honed their songwriting and composition skills overtime.
Valetta were founded by songwriter and vocalist Alex Orosa and his younger brother Nic on guitar, and later rounded out with bassist Chris Buratta and drummer Oli Cox. We asked Valetta for a little insight and this is what Alex told us:
“Irregular Low was a watershed moment for the band creatively, as we moved towards a more ambitious soundscape and incorporated electronic elements into our music for the first time. We all got a collective buzz from this track and it quickly became a cornerstone for our sound.”
Alex says further:
“Lyrically, the song expresses a cynical view of romantic relationships, and the compromises people make to be with one another. It also explores the good parts of bad relationships and the bad parts of good relationships.”
