    Valentine’s Day 2012 saw the release of, Kildare native, Valentine Black’s debut album ‘Desire Lines’ on Lewd Minx Records. Named after the natural paths made by people walking through forests or fields, it mixes the heart of Springsteen with the melodies of Bowie and the lush arrangements of Elbow or Arcade Fire. Folk and pop soaked indie-rock songs covering love, loss, modern Ireland and even murder! With thoughtful lyrics and a warm vinyl sound, it’s a wonderful introduction to the straight talking yet romantic world of Mr Valentine Black.
    Available through bandcamp, reverbnation, itunes, facebook and select stores (including Tower Records Dublin, Top Twenty Newbridge) from February 14th.
