With Valleyheart - their third full-length offering - She Wants Revenge has achieved the
kind of dynamic catharsis every band hopes it will survive long enough to experience: rising
up out of their diverse influences, She Wants Revenge has taken flight, fully realizing a
sound all their own.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Arriving four years after This Is Forever showed just how closely She Wants Revenge could
follow the post-punk and synth pop rule books, Valleyheart injects the band's sound with
some much-needed ambition and eclecticism. A concept album about the San Fernando Valley
and the turbulent relationships of its denizens, this set of songs proves once and for all that
while She Wants Revenge's influences may be from New York and England, they're
undeniably a product of Los Angeles. They're as sleek and slick as ever on love/hate songs
like "Little Star" and "Up in Flames," which makes their city sound downright dangerous,
with lyrics like "the canyon screams and the highways bleed at night." "Not Just a Girl" and
"Suck It Up" are typical dark and doomy She Wants Revenge songs, but more often than
not, the band tries new things. "Take the World" puts gritty electronics and programmed
beats at the fore, while many of the highlights are surprisingly lighthearted. "Must Be the
One" echoes some of U2's soaring sweetness, while "Kiss Me" couches SWR's swooning
romanticism in deceptively sunny pop. "Holiday Song" might be Valleyheart's finest moment,
a Bowie-esque ballad that captures the splendid isolation/self-pity of being alone on a day
where everyone else is together. Ultimately, the album shows that She Wants Revenge is
developing their own sound on their own terms. ~ Heather Phares
