Valentine’s Day this year sees the release of, Kildare native, Valentine Black’s debut album ‘Desire Lines’. Named after the natural paths made by people walking through forests or fields, it mixes the heart of Springsteen with the melodies of Bowie and the lush arrangements of Elbow or Arcade Fire. Folk and pop tinged indie-rock songs covering love, loss, modern Ireland and even murder! With thoughtful lyrics and a warm vinyl sound, it’s a wonderful introduction to the straight talking yet romantic world of Mr Valentine Black.
Available online through bandcamp, reverbnation, itunes, facebook and in Tower Records Dublin, Top Twenty Kildare and select stores from February 14th.
Valentine Black has been described as 'a wizard and a true star' (Hot Press) and 'amazing with superb vocals and lyrics' (2uibestow), and ‘passionate and honest’(musicvice.com-Canada). He has supported acts like The Waterboys, Mundy, Bell X-1, Damien Dempsey, Duke Special, The Blizzards, The Coronas, Luka Bloom, and Jerry Fish.
