Los Angeles six-piece Valora cast a spell with their hypnotic new single, "I Waited For You".
It's an otherworldly hard rock gem that tows the line between ethereal, elegant flourishes and bombastic, bruising riffage. An electronic orchestral hum skates across a vibrant metallic backdrop, allowing listeners to immediately fall into Valora's embrace.
Their grip tightens as soon as Syd Duran's dreamy croon takes over. She carries a poetic verse into one of the most unforgettable hooks you'll hear all year. Mid-song, her voice dives into an intense emotional exorcism before seamlessly snapping back into that massive refrain. It's utterly magical and everything a great song should be.
After a couple listens, it's clear. Valora are just what rock 'n' roll needed—an infectious, invigorating, and innovative female-fronted powerhouse. They're just aren't enough of those and the genre has been begging for that unconsciously for years now.
Now, watch the spell spread once their full-length debut hits…
