Valencia
This Could Be A Possibility
I Surrender Records
www.valenciamusic.net


In a time of pop-punk bands virtually sprouting out of our ears, this new band fits in nicely. Valencia is following perfectly in the footsteps of bands like Hawthorne Heights, Fall Out Boy, and fellow tour associates Boys Like Girls. With This Could Be A Possibility being their debut release they are right where they're supposed to be: the beginning. The album doesn't give you a whole lot more variety than their predecessors, yet it shows definite promise. To get their pop-punk sound they mix happy-go-lucky lyrics, light drums and some chipper guitar. Sure, there may be an underlying darker tone or theme to the album that the band is trying to go for. But unfortunately, like any other pop-punk band, you just get mostly songs to jump around to.

The key to their success could be sticking with a band that's already taking off. And touring with Boys Like Girls will do just that. Between the two of them you're going to have one great show. This album has a good sound to it and the band has the makings of the next F.O.B.
