FRESH: ‘I Hate You Cause I Love You’ – Valerie Warntz

Valerie Warntz says “I Hate You Cause I Love You”!

by Christopher Smith

“I was inspired by the situation where you date a guy and it feels like these relationships are perfect, but unexpectedly he just leaves you for another girl. You don’t understand what happened, so you just think about happy moments you had and all you feel now is that you hate him because you love him so much and want to get back together”. That’s what Valerie Warntz tells us about her latest single “I Hate You Cause I Love You”.

Valerie is no stranger to us here at talkaboutpopmusic.com. The 21 year old singer-songwriter has been musically inclined since childhood. Being inspired by Fergie, she entered local school of arts at the age of 9, where studied sol-fa guitar and piano playing, as well as travelled over the Europe with orchestra. As told by Valerie, these knowledge and touring experience play a big role in her DIY music career. In 2010 and 2012, Valerie attempted twice to build a band in her hometown, but this idea didn’t work out. In 2015, being inspired by her favorite artist Lana Del Rey, the singer wrote her first song “I Don’t Love You Anymore”, which recieved some recognition over YouTube and Spotify, and started pursuing solo career.

After releasing 2 EPs: “The Xmas Story” (2017), “Crazy Dreams” (2018) and two music videos on VEVO, Valerie made us here take notice with her single “Garden Of Thoughts“, which charted three days in iTunes UK: Top-200 single chart and Top-50 Alternative chart. She then released the spunky “Ca$h“, which is taken from her new album “Revelation”. Valerie confesses that in the hard times of her life music was always with her, while nobody else was around. She believes that lyrics is truly a heart of the song, that’s why she aims to be honest with her audience. Join the journey…

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
