It took only a handful of singles and one marvelous EP to land Valley Queen some fans — and coveted
support slots for high-profile acts like Laura Marling and Thao and the Get Down Stay Down. Named
loosely after the resting place of ancient Egyptian monarchs, the Los Angeles-based quartet fits within the
zeitgeist of Southern California ’70s-inspired indie rock, its music driven by intelligent lyrics and a
distinct voice. Frontwoman Natalie Carol’s pipes are a little bit Stevie Nicks and a little bit Joan Baez,
song depending, and they pack a gorgeous punch paired with the band’s folksy, country-inflected indie
rock. We wouldn’t be surprised to see more of this group in the future.
