New single: IT’S ALL REALLY KIND OF AMAZING
Bonnie Bloomgarden (main Valley Girl): “Being in a body, experiencing reality as a human, is endlessly challenging. There’s so much darkness, suffering, sorrow, and division, it’s hard to get past. Sometimes, and often for too long, I just stay in the darkness, forgetting there’s anything else. And then sometimes, my guides remind me to look around, sometimes, just look around, at this Earth, at its infinite beauty and intricacy, and simplicity, and sometimes I can feel it, that it’s all really kind of amazing.”
Turn Up The Volume: After the band’s fabtastic 2020 album Under The Spell Of Joy
(one of Turn Up The Volume’s top 5 LPs last year) the amazeballs girls from the City
of Death Valley Angels continue to spread a positive vibe.
But songwriter/singer Bonnie Bloomgarden knows damn well (from experience) that
eternal joy is a utopian dream but when you use all of your senses, you can see, hear,
feel and smell heartwarming things coming.
After the pandemic darkness, there’s a lot of hope that the light at the end of the tunnel is real. I guess that’s what Bonnie expresses here with this sweet, catchy lullaby tune. It’s not the end of the world as we know it and it feels fine.
Tune in and smile…
