See the Music: Valora — "I Waited for You"
Wed, 02 Nov 2011 09:26:22
Valora are about to take over hard rock.
Their reign officially commences with the brand new single, "I Waited for You" from their forthcoming 2012 debut album. The Los Angeles band nods to the sweeping arena-ready orchestration of Evanescence while sprinkling just the right amount of groovy aggression a la Pantera on top of those entrancing soundscapes.
At heart though, Valora is its own beast. "I Waited for You" slips from an elegantly dark verse into one of the most memorable hooks you'll hear all year. Where the song really takes off is during the bridge when singer Syd Duran subtlely steps back into near spoken word before one final eruption. They're the best band we've heard in a long time and you're going to love them…
In this exclusive "See the Music" interview, Syd Duran spoke to ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino about the story behind "I Waited for You". She reveals what the song means, how it came together, and so much more!
