In 2010, Justin Vallesteros released his first song “Party Talk” as Craft Spells, recording the lo-fi single on his own.
The song is pleasing, straightforward number expressing sentiment of a desire for something more out of a chance meeting.
“Is this new? ‘cause I’m falling for you/
This better not be party talk”
The lovelorn lyrics represent an attempt at identification with the rest of humanity in general and a pretty girl in particular. Fast forward to 2014, and Craft Spells have released their second full-length LP, Nausea — the title track of which almost seems to reference the 1938 Jean-Paul Sartre novel of the same name!
You’ve kept youself away from everyone you used know/
You brought yourself here now everybody’s gonna know”
