Feature: Paige Valentine – Lucky Blue

Lucky Blue, the debut album from Paige Valentine is a collection of 10 tracks that trace a sonic line between the music she made in the city, and the music created after her move to remote WA, to a town of 40 people, surrounded by unexplored wilderness and perched on the edge of the world.

It is an album layered with notes of revolution and rebuilding, with Paige’s drive to thrive amidst adversity, and her search for power within solitude.

Lucky Blue is both a personal and sonic transformation traversing Paige’s letting go of stability and comfort, of rebuilding and reshaping her life, and of remembering the lightness of living.

The journey to Lucky Blue not only helped Paige find herself as an artist, but as a person too.

All of it started at a studio with a little blue door that had a horseshoe hanging above it.

Thematically, Paige’s music arches across age-old artistic fascinations; love, death, growth, a loss of innocence, the stark face of grief. From her celebration of a remarkable life lived on lead single Cloud Dancing to her reflection on loving without considering the consequences on Navigate the Bonnie and Clyde-esque renegade lovers of Retrograde her fight to take back control of her life on Horoscopes or the magic of harnessing a free-spirited energy and dropping your insecurities on new single High every sonic moment on Lucky Blue feels as personal as reading a page out of Paige’s diary, and as close and comforting as a secret whispered between friends, yet also deeply, soothingly relatable.

It’s a testament to her ability to encapsulate a moment, a feeling, and a story within a delicate, heavenly arrangement, cutting straight to the heart of matters with devastating concision.

Paige Valentine’s debut album Lucky Blue is available to stream now via Nettwerk.
