Natalie Carol is singing about stars, and for everybody waiting for the stars to align for L.A. quartet Valley Queen, that’s a good thing.

The song is “Supergiant,” and it’s the title track to Valley Queen’s full-length debut, coming July 13 via Roll Call Records. Like VQ’s previous work, it’s characterized by Carol’s siren vocals and Shawn Morones’ equally bright guitar work. Named for the fastest-burning stars in the universe, “Supergiant,” says Carol, “is about how we’re all made up of the same stuff as stars, and I liked the idea of tying the whole album together with that metaphor. It takes all the drama you hear on the record — the aggressive, chaotic moments, and the more beautiful or quieter moments — and puts it all into a more galactic perspective.”

Look skyward.
