“Starting off with craggy static pulses of a top secret radio transmission, it veers into a potent blend of rudimentary beats and distorted laser beam synth improvisation, Pete Swanson meets Giorgio Moroder style.” ~ THE FADER

VALLENS debut album CONSENT is available now on limited BLUE VINYL!

CLASH (UK PREMIERE) – “Consent’ is topical, powerful, and wholly invigorating”

NOW Magazine (ALBUM OF THE WEEK) – “From its melancholy start to its fantastic finish,
Consent is a twisted fever dream truly evoking the band’s namesake.”

EXCLAIM! Magazine (8/10) – “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”

CBC RADIO3 (INTERVIEW) – “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.”

DAILY VICE (INTERVIEW) – “Robyn Phillips of Vallens wants you to believe women”

“GET THERE”, an outtake from the LEAPER recording sessions, features vocals by fellow Toronto musician Jonathan Rogers (Elsa, The Seams), and describes “a road trip that feel like it will never end, running from your life and having no idea where you’re going.” ~ Jesse Crowe.

“Beliefs Share “Get There,” A Lucid Shoegazing Odyssey ~ the sensation of getting lost in a current, the kind of zoning out commonly associated with this kind of shoegaze. But the propulsion driving it is benevolent and calming” ~ The FADER

Get There is a starry collaboration between them and fellow Toronto band Elsa’s Jonathan Rogers, and it makes it sound like life’s all about the journey.” ~ STEREOGUM

With the release of Total Time just a few weeks away, DOOMSQUAD have today unveiled a visually arresting and suitably psychedelic video for current single ‘Pyramids On Mars’. Co-directed by Ghostprom and Trevor Blumas for PORCH, ‘Pyramids On Mars’ is shot in a dreamlike desert landscape: “The video is about the cyclical nature of time in correlation with memory, biology and the environment”, say Doomsquad. “It examines the polarities of drought and abundance, barrenness and vitality, male and female, singularly and plurality through a psychic quagmire of astral dust and mirrors.”
