Magneta Lane Bio

Canadian indie band hailing from Toronto, Ontario. The all-female line-up consists of family members Lexi Valentine (vocals & guitar) and Nadia King (drums) and French (bass). The band has received critical acclaim for their debut EP The Constant Lover. Their first single, also titled "The Constant Lover", as well as their second single, "Ugly Socialite", have been on rotation on MTV, VH1, and MuchMusic. The group formed after Valentine and King attended a concert in Toronto and met the band backstage. After the meeting they decided that watching a concert was not satisfying enough. The trio came together in fall 2003 and spent the next year playing shows in and around their native Toronto. Since then, they have broken into international indie scenes. Their sound has been compared to The Strokes, The Runaways and The Pretenders while honoring such influences as Nancy Sinatra, Sonic Youth, Hole and The Cardigans. They released The Constant Lover and Dancing with Daggers on Toronto based indie label Paper Bag Records. Both albums were successful and allowed the band to tour Canada, the US, Japan and parts of Europe. The band signed to Last Gang Records and released Gambling with God in Canada on September 15, 2009. Gambling with God, was released digitally in the U.S with a bonus track titled "Shatter" on November 9, 2010. Lexi has also appeared as a guest vocalist on Tokyo Police Club's "Nature Of The Experiment", K-os' "Fun", and Neverending White Lights'," Black Is The Colour Of My True Love's Heart". Magneta Lane's music has also appeared on the L word soundtrack, the Canadian Showcase Tv show Lost Girl, the movie CAKE starring Heather Graham and Microsoft's "Your Digital Lifestyle" advertisement, performing a cover version of Ash' song "Girl from Mars". Magneta Lane, released their latest music video “Shatter” at an exclusive VIP party held at the Gibson Guitar Artist Showroom in Toronto, Canada on Tuesday, February 22, 2011.
