gems & Rubies
Today, we release an extended version of “Gems and Rubies” that includes an alternate take - a musical movement we’ve always performed at our live shows.
"But the latest tease of the band’s long awaited debut album portends the Los Angeles quartet finally realizing their full potential. They’ve never sounded better than they do on “In My Place” — especially vocalist Natalie Carol, who wrestles with the wreckage of her faith and self-perception while anxiously considering her own youth “floating on great expectations” and “choking on grand illusions.” - STEREOGUM
"Driven by the impassioned vocals of Natalie Carol—tones that shiver in all the perfect places—"My Man" is a song that smacks of rolling hills and freeform dancing, a kind of pop imbued with Laurel Canyons vapors and alt country angles and a top down free spiritedness." - NOISEY
"Valley Queen comes from the Neil Young school of great music. They are fronted by Natalie Carol, whose voice is simply amazing." - Bob Boilen, NPR: ALL SONGS CONSIDERED
"The Arkansas transplant instills a lulling romantic mood, her clear voice arcing slowly like a comet over her band’s gentle ’70s country-rock backing. The Echo Park quartet pumps up the soul on their 2015 follow-up, “Who Ever Said,” a retro ballad distinguished by Carol’s persuasively hopeful entreaties." - LA WEEKLY
"...Carol has stayed true to her roots while embracing the psychedelia of California rock--and making some damn good music along the way." - THE VILLAGE VOICE
"...This video is a celebration and expression of that progress...and Love remains the ultimate outlaw." - HUFFPO
"Singer Natalie Carol has a real powerful voice, and the band’s folk pop has gained comparisons to Fleetwood Mac, Florence Welch, and others." - BROOKLYN VEGAN
