Frustrated by the struggles facing new bands in London, The Valla formed in 2019 and decided to try things a little differently. Inspired by the increasingly popular desire for intimate gigs, the boys started playing ‘secret house concerts’, hosting parties and packing out living rooms across London, performing their music to
friends and an ever growing fanbase.
Holding the line between pop and rock, the band are inspired by the likes of Sam Fender, Young the Giant and The 1975. The Valla released their debut EP ‘Just Chemicals’ produced by acclaimed producer Andy Hall Hall (Bastille, Fickle Friends, James Gillespie) in late 2019. It was championed by BBC Introducing South, where each track achieved a number of radio plays, with both ‘Anymore’ and ‘Six weeks’ also getting picked up by national mainstream German radio station Bayern 3.
In May of 2020 the band released their long awaited house party hit ‘Ice Cream’ with the tune racking up 5 BBC radio plays prior to its release, and was premiered on the homepage of the AU Review. The accompanying Music Video was a ‘viral inspired’ hit, where over 100 fans were filmed dancing and singing to
the catchy pop tune. In July, their next single ‘Shut My Mouth’ was released with a total of four BBC radio plays prior to its release, and saw the band achieving a placement on Spotifys editorial ‘IndieDancefloor’ playlist!
