Valaska, an independent act from Chicago, premiered their new music video for “Avant-Garde,” and it will give you a taste of their new sound, which has been drawing parallels to Bright Eyes thanks to vocalist Dave Valdez’s soothing emotive vocals. Valdez is backed by bassist Zach Porlier and drummer Matt Holmes.
