New Tune Review: This Track Slaps


Kitchener’s Dom Vallie formally hit the local music scene pretty hard in 2019 with a high concept video for “Scared of Death”. The video, shot by popular local videographer Iced Out Visuals, has amassed almost 20,000 views since dropping.

In the time since dropping his debut project Nights in 2017, Vallie has consistently improved his craft and quality of output through hard work and collaboration with talented producers and artists.

While he has yet to drop a track that doesn’t slap, his growth is staggering when you draw a line from Nights through “Scared to Death”, 2020’s “Welcome to Tartarus”, up to his most recent single, “Bleeding Love”.

The R&B drill track interpolates the classic Leona Lewis song and, to say the least, it definitely does it justice. I look forward to hearing it drop on all platforms, but for now it’s just running numbers up on YouTube.

If one thing is for certain at this point, it’s that you can expect big things in Vallie’s future, as the young artist appears hungry for success and determined to stop at nothing short of it.
