New York born, Sydney bred dark-pop artist Valencia James is making music for those in need. With a catalogue of music inspired by real life events, Valencia is on a mission song by song to give listeners something real, something organic, something true.
Although her music may stem from moments of doubt and sadness, the empowering songstress aims to cast light on even the most difficult of times. Her stunning vocals create an honest and relatable sound, allowing others to connect on a personal level. Described as ‘strong, mysterious and authentic’, Valencia oozes confidence through her compelling music.
Following the release of her debut single Flames, which garnered both critical and commercial acclaim, Valencia is back with the highly anticipated Dreamers. The single is an anthem reminding us that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and is another example of the songwriters’ praised edgy-pop style and powerful lyricism.
Valencia reveals, “I wrote Dreamers at a time in my life when I was learning how to dream again and believe for dreams that I had forgotten about. It’s kind of that song where I was just like, ‘Why can’t I do all the things that I want to?’ I had just come out of a period of depression about my future and this was my song … let’s all just start dreaming again and going for what we want in life.”
Featuring dreamy synth-pop soundscapes, haunting vocals, and oscillating rhythms, Dreamers creates an uplifting ambiance with an undeniably catchy melody. Valencia shares, “I hope people listen to the song and remember to dream again, to hope again, and to believe in themselves again.”
With the aspiration that her music will encourage others to believe in themselves, Valencia preaches that we can do whatever we set our minds to and that we have more in us than we think we do.
