Make way for a groove-laden musical force that
will calibrate your heartbeat to dance mode.
Vendetta Valentine delivers a punkish, electro
rock sound capable of leaving fans shaking, punks
thrashing, housewives dancing, and alterna-kids
feeling hip for a second or two. Rockers rejoice -
this is what you're been looking for.
With distinguished layers of sonic guitars and
lush keyboards fronted by their gripping
retro-dance punk beats, in-your-face vocals and an
ear for sophisticated pop poignancy, Vendetta
Valentine is able to combine the smarts of The
Pixies and the dance feel of Finger Eleven with
the boldness of Modest Mouse.
Using Santa Ana, California as their home base,
the group consists of Thomas Monroe (vocals,
rhythm guitar), Daniel Powell (guitar, bass, drum
machine programming), and Anna Judd (keyboard,
synthesizers). The trio blends a variety of music,
bringing in influences from hip-hop artists such
as Tribe Called Quest, Dr. Dre, and OutKast, while
interweaving the psytrance, techno, and classical
genres to bring their musical structures together.
Their innovative combinations of styles makes
Vendetta Valentine? sound a profound musical
statement that resonates into our day and age.
This trio? artistic endeavor doesn? stop with
just music. Each member takes part in various
other forms of multimedia arts. Monroe is a
well-read art aficionado, and is also an author of
the novel Neeva? Gift. Powell has his hands in
video production and post, while Judd is a studio
artist, drawing and painting. Vendetta Valentine?
work is a pristine mirror into each member?
extra-musical activities and hobbies, shedding
light on an whole new layer of meaning behind the
Vendetta Valentine? freshman effort, There?
Nothing Safe, is a quintessential product of their
artistic efforts, crafting a tightly produced,
hook-laden rock album appealing to indie, punk,
and alternative fans alike. The album takes you to
the edge and pushes you over into the dark sexy
world of mutinous heroes and dance sensibilities.
Armed with accessible and driving material such as
the B-52? style ?et It Burn? the forceful
?olden?and the retro-grooving ?issidents? it?
no wonder that Vendetta Valentine has already
scored airplay on KROQ Los Angeles and been asked
to license their music on MTV.
