The Valla are an authentic, original and creative band who create music for the “damaged soul” and for those craving a deeper meaning in life.

They consider themselves the “indiest of rock bands” and prove this in their latest EP Just Chemicals, which is beautifully written and shows their vulnerability. They are slowly becoming a known name in the indie scene and are definitely ones to look out for.
