“There is much inspiration from White's "round the world" experience, according to their Myspace biography, which is likely to be beneficial in helping White Valentine to stand out as a band and express a certain individuality on the indie music scene. Despite their change of musical direction, it is clear from the tracks available via their Myspace page, that they have not lost their acoustic roots. Goodbye My Friend, for example has an acoustic almost folk-style feel to it, thus hailing from their earlier work, whereas the tracks Let's Let it Go and I'll Be Fine (which reached number 3 in the band's local charts), are much more indie-centred. It is the track To My Knees.
It is thus clear that White Valentine have the potential to make a large impact on today's music scene. With a steadily growing fan base, they have already come a long way since their origins as an acoustic duo and this success is likely to continue”
“Goodbye My Friend by White Valentine
For some reason, immediately at the beginning of this track it reminds me of something that would be on the programme "Skins" as it has a certain 'summery/loving life' feel, but quickly changes into quite a slow,'storytelling' mode- quite emotional also, I feel relaxed, especially the instrumental break '2:00-2:07', the wait for the next verse is paced well; I really enjoyed the chorus, including the build up, right at the very end, I think this allowed the right feeling to finish the song.”
