Walking in The Sand with Sweet Valley Slumber Party - An Interview

O ensolarado e altamente californiano, Sweet Valley Slumber Party faz jus ao nome e faz conexões com a gravadora Slumberland e sua sonoridade retro 60´s, um mix de bubblegum, girl groups e class of 86.

Virgins o ep do SVSP é simplesmente pegajoso, viciante e um verdadeiro refresco para a mente.
