New Artist Spotlight: Vallens.

Toronto guitarist/vocalist Robyn Phillips' project Vallens first performed live only a year ago. Since then she's released two excellent tracks, accompanied by equally worthwhile videos. The clip for goth-gaze excursion "Dark Tunnel" is directed by Adam Seward.

Director Shelby Fenlon deploys Phillips' intensely captivating on-camera presence with considerable gravity in the recent video for "Tennessee Haze."

Vallens' debut album will be released by Hand Drawn Dracula in spring 2016. We will be posting an in-depth interview here when it comes out. Meanwhile, you can learn more about Phillips—and purchase a download of "Tennessee Haze"—from the label.
