A white-hot flash of pop-punk, Philadelphia's Valencia blend rocketing chords with sweet, stacked harmonies and desperate, yearning vocals. The quick touch-point is Fuse-friendly bands like Fall Out Boy and Motion City Soundtrack; Valencia shares both groups 'affinity for heartache and hyperactivity. From the rollicking rocker "Que Sera Sera" to the sweet, moody "The Closest I Am to Living on the Edge", Valencia prove themselves eminently radio-ready, perfect music for breaking up — and making up.
