Song of the Day: “Wrecking Ball” by The Great Valley

Today’s song is “Wrecking Ball” by The Great Valley. The Wilmington, DE duo is made up of brothers Louis and Nick Matos. With their mother being a music teacher and their father a drummer,  the guys have been surrounded by music their whole lives and picked up instruments at an early age. After years of writing music together the band released their debut EP Wrecking Ball this past April which debuted 188 on iTunes top 200 Alternative Chart.

Enjoying online success the record was picked up by Hot Topic to be distributed into 35 stores across Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. Shortly after The Great Valley caught the attention of AOL Music director Peter Schiecke who immediately wanted to team up with the band for a feature on AOL. Wanting to give back to their fans the band & AOL Music released 3 acoustic songs for free. “Stripped” was released on August 10th, you can download it here. A few weeks later the band released their highly anticipated music video for their single “Wrecking Ball” you can view the video here:
