Really Love This Sam Valdez

This new track from Sam Valdez just dropped, and it’s quite an enchanting number, particularly considering all the buzz new Mazzy Star got this week. Valdez shares some similarities with Hope Sandoval, especially in the way her voice seems to have this timeless pop sensibility that’s warm around the edges. Musically, she seems to have dialed into the vast expanse of her home state of Nevada, where at times the desert can seem endless; it leaves her music open and striking. She’s just signed on with Nevado Music to release a new EP, featuring this track, later in the Summer.
