about

The Stroke EP provides an outlet for 'Roots Causes'
along with new tracks 'Stroke' and 'Stellababy'

These 'neo-grunge' tracks aim to go some way toward filling that
Bowie shaped hole.

'My Engine' is the very first track recorded by Big Valley.
Jagged edge grunge.

Finally, a slowed down homage to DJ Screw completes this E.P.

Watch the videos on YouTube via 'Battery Exhausted'

Track Name: Roots Causes
Roots Causes

I'm in a line / I'm in a line up to leave him
I'm in a line / I'm in a line up to leave him

Stand outside because you can't keep your boy in line
When he calls it should come up on your phone like
Come hard but you can't hide your razor
In the mirror I'm a fucking transformer

Stand outside because you can't keep your boy in line
When he calls it come shook up on your phone like
Come hard but you can't hide your razor
In the mirror I'm a fucking transformer

You eat meat like you don't mind the murder
And I heard (herd) you follow your farmer like a leader
I've come to set you free from all that you believe
You've been deceived and I can see that you are ready to be released
Before I was a glitter chip prince I was a writer
Now I'm fire that ignites the fire lighters
Come hard but you can't find your razor
Well in the mirror i'm a fucking transformer

Stand outside because you can't keep your boy in line
When he calls it should come up on your phone like
Come hard but you can't hide your razor
In the mirror I'm a fucking transformer

Stand outside because you can't keep your boy in line
When he calls it come shook up on your phone like
Come hard but you can't hide your razor
In the mirror I'm a fucking transformer

I'm in a line / I'm in a line up to leave him
You come hard but you can't keep deceiving me
I'm a fashion / A state of art / A season
A lesson learned come blind blud / Come believe in me
Well I'm the crucial from New York to Roman settlements
I'm intelligence that needs to be leaked to be believed
Born denzien I say release your children
I call calm while you're teaching them to kill them

Stand outside because you can't keep your boy in line
When he calls it should come up on your phone like
Come hard but you can't hide your razor
In the mirror I'm a fucking transformer

Stand outside because you can't keep your boy in line
When he calls it come shook up on your phone like
Come hard but you can't hide your razor
In the mirror I'm a fucking transformer

Track Name: Stroke
Stroke (No Dog ) / Hello Ghosts

If ghosts exist then there are millions and billions of them
and I bet they follow me when I drive
late at night

If hope exists we can beat it out of them in time
I know why you're getting restless bitch
but I don't make mistakes

God bless the quiet at night
Are you sure you're feeling alright?
Why don't you just sit down for a while?
Someone call an ambulance

The bullet diet
People sink and corpses float but they are so brave
Delivery system straight into the brain
It comes and goes in waves

Concussive dream spiral to control
I don't hope and I don't float these days
Time to turn away

God bless the quiet at night
Are you sure you're feeling alright?
Why don't you just sit down for a while?
Someone call an ambulance

The family way made into a saint
At the base of this the cut
Explosive pain that comes from my disgrace

God bless the quiet at night
Are you sure you're feeling alright?
Why don't you just sit down for a while?
Someone call an ambulance

Track Name: Stellababy
Stellababy

She paints her lipstick on too thick and I think I'm sinking in
Inside my head I know I'm sick I don't know where to begin
If I have a drink a smoke I cope
I'm waiting for the day she puts her arms around me kisses me and says "It's ok."
It's all ok

Because I'm a will / I'm a time
I am gone so take all night
I'm at the wheel / It's a steal
Out of sight and out of my mind

She dresses down around me I still think that she's real neat
It's not the way she goes about the way that she stamps her feet
Everyday conversations seem to lack a finesse
I make it obvious that she's the one that I like the best

Because I'm a will / I'm a time
I am gone so take all night
I'm at the wheel / It's a steal
Out of sight and out of my mind

Track Name: My Engine
My Engine

You're my engine and my battery
I don't feel good / you're unhappy
Sixth form interest in the dance class
She's my crush you know it won't last

I'm a run out on empty you're a slam on the decks
I'm a fire you're a cause and effect
I'm electric are you ready?
If you touch me we can both be

Out on Tuesday
Keep your weekend free to see me whenever I need
Your unending love will fill me up with fluid and an energy

I'm a run out on empty you're a slam on the decks
I'm a fire you're a cause and effect
I'm electric are you ready?
If you touch me we can both be

Lost in service of your enemy
I deserve to be unhappy
When they look back will they notice there were blind spots in the focus

I'm a run out on empty you're a slam on the decks
I'm a fire you're a cause and effect
I'm electric are you ready?
If you touch me we can both be shocked

Bless New York and bless Chanel
Call my sky phone no I won't tell
I'm a cowboy you're a jazz star when the night
I swap my sex for guitars

I'm a run out on empty you're a slam on the decks
I'm a fire you're a cause and effect
I'm electric are you ready?
If you touch me we can both be shocked
