    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Our 2012 release, in limited edition, is a journey into a haunting landscape of yearning, outrage and escapes into imagined realities. The title track whispers of Portishead and Bjork, yet screams with a satisfying pop rock chorus. Valerie and bassist Veronika Safarova built a layered sound, complete with teasing guitar melodies and a rhythm section that guides listeners into Valerie's heart-wrenching, thoughtful lyrics and arrangements. Produced by Jason Carmer (Camper Van Beethoven, The Donnas, Third Eye Blind, Molotov), players include Michael Urbano on drums (Sheryl Crow, Smash Mouth) and Joe Gore on guitar (PJ Harvey, Tracy Chapman).

did I imagine you, my friend?
always a chance i did
traveled to a different plane
in one conversation

tension in the air so thick
can barely find my voice in it
a minute lasts for a day
all my sense gone completely astray

oh, you’re quite a kindred spirit
you incite my riot

with your fires and overturned cars
you’re the crime I yearn for

now I run from the scene
angry crowd chasing me
getaway car down the street
where you patiently waiting

oh, you’re quite a kindred spirit
you incite my riot

with your fires and overturned cars
you’re the crime I yearn for
I yearn for

Valerie Orth New York

Amidst the madness of 2020, when nothing is certain and we struggle to find hope for the future, we need artists like electro alt-pop songwriter/guitarist/producer Valerie Orth. She writes with a strong sense of self and a fierce feminist perspective, telling stories about alienated humanity and visions of a better tomorrow. Her new album, Rabbit Hole, due out Dec 4, couldn’t be more timely. ... more
