It is October 7th 2012 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
Labelling themselves as landlocked surf pop/indie rock, Cambridge, Ontario's Credit Valley is receiving this week's spot.
Since forming in early 2010, this band has certainly done a lot. On the band's Facebook page it states, "In the short time that they have been together, Credit Valley has been proud to share the stage with bands such as Ten Second Epic, These Kids Wear Crowns, A Rocket To The Moon, Brighter Brightest, Courage My Love and Breaching Vista. Their talent and showmanship have earned them spots in the Cambridge Arts Festival, Rock the Mill 2011 and the Cambridge Mayor's Celebration Of The Arts." On top of those [already amazing] accomplishments, they have many new ones to add to their list.
In December of 2011, Credit Valley made top four in the Best Band Battle 2011, which was held in Waterloo, Ontario. Only one month later and they were selected to be a part of a soundtrack for a local independent Canadian film, titled All I Need. Plus, that same month they won the 2012 Long & McQuade Battle Of The Bands contest in Stratford, Ontario. Beyond that, they were selected, yet again, to be a part of another soundtrack for a Canadian independent film, titled Locked In A Garage Band, back in April of 2012.
Considering these guys have only been around for a little over two years, the fact that they have accomplished so much is phenomenal. Plus, although Credit Valley is back to their original two members, siblings Cacia Murphy (vocals / bass) and Callon Murphy (guitar / backing vocals), they still have a lot coming your way. And, because this band has shown us how incredible they truly are their song Something is being recognized this week.
On the band's Facebook band page it adds, "With originals that run the gamut from pop/punk to ska to folksy/alternative rock to surf, they have gathered new fans with each show. Their music reaches out to both genders and all ages."
So, if you do not know about Credit Valley make sure to check them out soon. With their "tight sound and honest lyrics" continually putting this band in the minds of everyone, you will surely hear of them very soon. And, Something has definitely earned this week's featured 'Song of the Week' spot.
Credit Valley have several videos posted over on their official Youtube Channel for you to check out. They also posted a live version of this week's 'Song of the Week', Something, which you can watch here:
