An album created on raw emotion, lead vocalist Jennifer Valdez began writing the tracks after experiencing a painful life event. Fueled by this emotion, Keys And Vices created a straight-forward, in-your-face, powerful rock sound, with the end result being “Chronic Nostalgia.” Tackling lyrical topics such as personal vices, death of love, and illness, Keys And Vices successfully captures their essence in all eight tracks.
“About “Chronic Nostalgia”, the band states:“Chronic Nostalgia, is a blueprint for everyone who’s ever had to survive heartbreak. It reminds the listener that love doesn’t belong to them, they belong to it. This isn’t an album about love in the classic sense. The pain of a heartbreak comes from many places – the death of a loved one, betrayal and abandonment of a soulmate, or your own vices that destroy the possibility of triumph.”
