Alison Valentine – ‘Peanut Butter’
Released: Free download
Label: HeavyRoc Music
This track was premiered by Kick Kick Snare a couple of days ago and we've listened to it 32 times since then, meaning it must be good. Right? RIGHT.
It is a tropical disco sort of affair which Alison herself describes as "SebastiAn and Janet Jackson go to the beach with the Tom Tom Club". We also like the EastEnders-style drumclaps in the intro.
Other stuff about Alison:
» She's currently studying at the Tisch School of the Arts. We're afraid we can't think of any former Tisch students who've gone on to do anything of note, apols.
» She has performed with the Metropolitan Opera Children’s Choir.
» She went to boarding school in Switzerland.
» There's an EP coming up - it's called 'Swimming Pool Sounds' and it's out later this summer.
Basically it doesn't sound she's exactly skint but she might well be the next big blogpop superstar, so keep your eye on her. Between now and the EP being released you can get 'Peanut Butter' as a free MP3 in the player below, or over on the SoundCloud page.
