VALA's "I've Got Me" is an assertive indie pop fight-song

VALA's "I've Got Me" is an assertive indie pop fight-song

 VALA doesn't only sound cool as a cucumber, but their visuals are pretty badass too. These three women (Marie Hines, Kristen Rogers and Holley Maher) released an incredibly hooky, self-assertive self-titled record last month. Its lead single, "I've Got Me," is about not needing anyone else, just yourself. This is especially refreshing in today's pool of love songs. VALA is synth-y, reverberous, rhythmic and danceable. It's been a few decades since the Spice Girls ruled the pop scene, so it's high time for girl groups to make a comeback. I sure hope it's VALA. -Geena Kloeppel
