"'Higher', is an exemplary study in chill-out atmospherics that benefits from pristine production....layered ethereal vocals sit above an ambient electronic soundscape"
John Meagher, Irish Independent

One of 'The Acts to Watch in 2011' as recommended by Dan Hegarty, 2fm

"You could say that In Valour are a Geographically challenged band. The duo is made up of Val who lives in Cork, and Howard who calls Sydney home. However, the thousands of miles between them hasn't obstructed their creative chemistry. They've concocted a sound that fans of Cocteau Twins, Sigur Ros and Glasser will adore... beautiful stuff!"

Review of 'Into the Light' on Independent Music News, UK

"Into The Light, into the dark. It begins like the start to an alien horror film, however in blossoms into a flower. The petals provide the different aspects to the track.....The vocals reminisce in-form Regina Spektor and June Carter words and create a force unknown to man; unless you’ve watched Transformers, they kick our asses."

Rate: 9/10

Review of 'Into the Light' mixed by Steve Shannon (Strands) on music blog thepointofeverything...

"This is just magical. In Valour are a duo that work via the wonder of the web. Cork singer Valerie Hely and Sydney-based artist artist Howard combine their talents to create something really special in the shape of ‘Into The Light’. It helps that on producing duty is none other than the man behind one of The Point Of Everything’s favourite bands, Strands. Stephen Shannon dons his producing hat to help the worldly duo create a magical free single. “We haven’t caught up with the future,” Valerie sings to open proceedings. They really don’t need to catch up with anyone – we are the ones who have to keep up."

Jackie Hayden, Hot Press Magazine
