Discovery: Anie Valentine

Anie Valentine is a Dublin, Ireland-based garage rock band who has just released their debut single Ending Things. Inspired by ’80s grunge and modern pop, they proved an irresistible prospect when the track came onto my radar.

Ending Things is a way for frontwoman Anie to release her pent-up frustration about past relationships and she’s doesn’t hold back. Opening with a languid and explicit verse, it’s clear that Anie is over the BS. Accompanied by jangly guitar, lively drums and driving bass, it’s a prime example of modern pop rock.

Fronted by the eponymous Anie Valentine, the band also features her best friends Matthew Redmond on lead guitar, Chloe Corcoran Hanlon on drums, and Jordan Crawford on bass. They’re certainly a hot prospect on the international underground rock scene.
