Valley Queen – Stars Align (Music Video)
by Steven Spoerl
A week ago Los Campesinos!, Chloe Foy, TEEN, Sarah Bethe Nelson, Linda Fox, The Afghan Whigs, and The Districts all debuted strong music videos that made a sizable impact. Valley Queen also released a clip of their own and provided a potent reminder of their strength. One of the best things to ever boast the band’s name, the Nick Flessa-directed video for “Stars Align” expertly enhances the project’s most nostalgic allure while providing it with a warm tenderness that grants the entire affair an extra dash of texture. Honest, well-rounded, and oddly moving, the video for “Stars Align” serves as an accurate reflection of the song, rendering the entire project the band’s most definitive piece to date. It’d be a mistake to let it go by without granting it the same level of care that it offers up on its own.
