LA-area Garage Punk and Desert-Psychedelic outfit Death Valley Girls are always a band to watch and today they have shared a new video and single with the world via Suicide Squeeze. The new song/video ‘It’s All Really Kind of Amazing” really channels lead singer Bonnie Bloomberg’s belief in “the power of positivity and the interconnectedness we all have”. The video is by Brady Hale.

Bonnie Bloomberg explains:

“Being in a body, experiencing reality as a human, is endlessly challenging. There’s so much darkness, suffering, sorrow, and division, it’s hard to get past. Sometimes, and often for too long, I just stay in the darkness, forgetting there’s anything else. And then sometimes, my guides remind me to look around, sometimes, just look around, at this Earth, at its infinite beauty and intricacy, and simplicity, and sometimes I can feel it, that it’s all really kind of amazing.”  

The new single features Larry Schemel’s chiming guitar chords, Bloomgarden’s electric piano lines, choral hooks, and layers of instrumentation, Rikki Styxx’s drums, Emily Retsas on bass, and the “gang vocals” of Little Ghost, Pickle, and Kelsey Whatever NBD.

Bloomgarden comments further on the song:

“We are streams of eternal consciousness experiencing reality through our personal lens. And we have been programmed and have forgotten we are gods because of trauma, capitalism, and religion. So this song is a call to wake up! To remember you are magic! Abundance is the normal state… look for the signs from your guides and your higher self.”
