Marc Valentine, the unmistakably British singer-songwriter whose powerpop-fueled debut album was released last year to critical acclaim, returns with ‘Jinx Of Finchley Road’ – a digital single scheduled for release through Little Steven’s Wicked Cool Records on September 1st.
Produced by Dave Draper (The Wildhearts, Ryan Hamilton, The Professionals), the song hints at nefarious and uncanny happenings in North London. Nostalgia and mystery meet in a basement full of hooks to create a single that sounds as if it was
plucked from the charts during the glory days of Britpop.
Having honed his craft over four albums with cult pop-rockers Last Great Dreamers, Valentine launched a solo career in 2022, his album ‘Future Obscure’ delighting fans and picking up praise from an array of publications.
‘Jinx Of Finchley Road’ marks his return to the spotlight, which looks set to grow even brighter through 2024.
What others have said about ‘Future Obscure’:
“Melody that would slay daytime radio in a saner world… 9/10” – Vive Le Rock
“Ace solo debut from the Last Great Dreamers frontman; a masterclass in melody and energy… 4/5”- Mojo
“Endlessly melodic… simultaneously touching and gloriously
rambunctious” – Classic Rock
“A buoyant and joyous pop-infused blast of rock ‘n’ roll”- Louder Than War
“Jinx Of Finchley Road” will be available to stream through
regular digital platforms on September 1st.
