Cover picture for the articleLou Roy is a singer-songwriter from the LA suburb of Topanga Canyon. “Valkyrie,” her first single for UK label Balloon Machine, was produced by Sarah Tudzin of Illuminati Hotties and inspired by the chaos of Las Vegas and, per her own description, “female figures in Norse mythology who ride horses through the sky with big, long swords and are very sick.” Lou Roy sings, “Ride with me, Valkyrie/ Slay all those fuckers that have hurt you in the past.” The song exists at the intersection of folksy indie rock and lithe R&B, with a rhythm Roy originally tapped out on a water bottle.
