Consider me on board with whatever Valentina does in the near future. After her excellent contributions to Joe Goddard’s ‘Gabriel’ and Two Door Cinema Club’s ‘The World Is Watching’, her debut single ‘Wolves’ marked her solo material out with a vaporous orchestral track.
‘Ladders’ singles her out some more with its comfortably lush arrangement and yearning vocal and production by Esser.
It’s taken from the Wolves EP out at the end of April on Greco-Roman.
