LA quartet Valley Queen has revealed another hair-raising single “Ride” where we’re taken into a meditative sweet spot between hazy and lo-fi rock. If you’re someone who is constantly moving forward, then this is your go-to track for some sonic breeziness:

“‘Ride’ speaks to my inherently restless nature and natural inclination to be in motion. Written in the midst of a pregnancy scare, the song grapples with desire to move and the grounded-ness that motherhood requires. I dedicate this song to women that have chosen to be mothers, as well as those that have chosen not be mothers and the courage that both paths require.” shared vocalist Natalie Carol.

“Ride” is from the band’s upcoming debut album Supergiant, which will be out on July 13th via Roll Call Records. Catch them live this summer:
