Why do we like this?

As if I haven't shared enough Valley Maker songs.. 

But seriously these guys are just ridiculous, and if I'm left to my own devices their whole When I Was A Child album will soon be on Indie Shuffle.

In a world where albums are becoming slowly redundant (or maybe that's just my world), it is so nice to be entirely captured by a collection of 12 beautifully crafted, well written songs -- every one of which tug at your heartstrings.

Title track "When I was A Child" seems as though songwriter Austin Crane is grappling with the idea of simply accepting everything he was told is good in the world -- indeed, themes which are recurring throughout the album (listen to "Goodness"). Subtle church bells ringing throughout the track hint towards a religious undertone, perhaps serving to offer a deeper understanding of the lyrics.

"When I was growing up

I tried to have my fun
I tried to hurt no one
My mind got stuck
It split and it sunk
So I gave it up
I gave it up"

They are just as captivating live, peep the video below:
