Biography

If it’s all been given to you then there is no room for any creativity or resourcefulness of your own. The entertaining young ladies of Magneta Lane have done it themselves and they have a very specific idea of the way they are to be seen and understood. Naturally they have magnetism and an allure that is hard for everyone to resist. They’re young and in under a year have formed a band that will redefine what a young rock band’s is capable of accomplishing.

Lexi Valentine and Nadia King got together in the fall of ’03 intent on presenting a strong female presence that wasn’t an adolescent cry in the dark. No juvenile sulking and sneering and no melodrama. Soon, French joined them in forming Magneta Lane, a potent antidote to the faux punk posturing of today’s manufactured young rock bands. Guided by their influences, The Kinks, Sonic Youth, Velvet Underground and Nancy Sinatra, Magneta Lane have created a sound, mood and style all their own. Impressively they preserve their femininity while engaging the audience in positively gritty sounds and wise beyond their year’s lyrics.

Then in early spring ‘04, the band played one fortunate show at a venue that was poorly attended but had the few that mattered. They were enrapturing fans every time they played. Within a few shows, they were new favorites of the Paper Bag family and have quietly signed on to PBR.

The Constant Lover is their debut CD. It may surprise you that these young girls have created something unexpectedly great in times of transparency and cynicism. You should love these girls for being true and offering a genuine expression of their selves.

Magneta Lane have shed the false plastic layer that has been put upon girls like them and show you what’s underneath; in this case the reality is much more intriguing. What they communicate commands attention; they deliver their female experience genuinely. Awash in the shadows, the stage light highlights the bittersweet of their songs by illuminating the fresh but experienced cheeks of these soon to be stars and heartbreakers.
