“I’ve fallen in love with Vallens, a shoegaze band from Toronto, and their music video for “Dark Tunnel.” It is a shadowy mirage through the woods, splashed with glitter and fairy lights” - ROOKIE MAG

“21 Female-Fronted Bands You Need To Listen To” - BUST

“The lo-fi Toronto band’s David Lynchian inspired video demands respect and belief in women. – Vallens’ debut album, a dark aura of lo-fi rock led by singer-songwriter Robyn Phillips that explores a myriad of women’s issues including sexual, physical, and communicative consent” - NOISEY

“dissonance, piercing guitars and impassioned vocals to make a sound akin to Siouxsie & the Banshees or Los Angeles’ X” – LIVE / CLASH

“The Lynchian influence returns full force in the Toronto-based ensemble’s new music video for “Devour” – a twisted boudoir photo shoot – a troubling meditation on identity – the gentle shoegaze soundtrack” - INTERVIEW MAGAZINE

“Consent’ is topical, powerful, and wholly invigorating” – CLASH

“From its melancholy start to its fantastic finish, Consent is a twisted fever dream truly evoking the band’s namesake” – Album Of The Week / NOW

“the type of record one should listen to with eyes closed, to fully allow the mind to be swept away on a journey that both delights and disturbs, in the most enchanting of ways” – 8/10 EXCLAIM!

“Consent is layered in a cloudy haze of dusky guitars over mysterious melodies, dreamy synthesizers seemingly taken from the lost tapes of a David Lynch film score, and shadowy, post punk grooves” – INTERVIEW / CBC RADIO3

“Vallens’ dark and smoky sound – definitely has a certain Black Lodge je ne sais quoi” - BROOKLYN VEGAN
