Valentina – Ladder

v07

While not as immediately striking as Valentina’s previous single, “Wolves”, “Ladder” is more pop oriented, revolving around a bottomless dynamic bass line and spacious instrumentals. Valentina’s vocals are impeccable as always and we must once again use Kate Bush as the most obvious reference point. It’s a song that grows by every listen, stirring up dreamlike emotions along the way. Around the 2.50 mark the bass drops of completely, while the drums keep pounding on and Valentina’s vocals undergo a ghostly transformation; it’s a clever trick, making the chorus sound all the more striking and effective once it kicks back in again. “Ladder” is yet another proof that Valentina’s forthcoming EP is one to highly anticipate.

Wolves EP is out on the 29th of April
