Valleys, Weeknight @ Holocene
We're truly impressed by the cinematic experimental pop of Montreal's Valleys.
From its inception, Valleys has been always changing. From the quiet and exploratory preliminary years to the stormy experimentation of recent works, the duo has always had one foot in the pop realm and the other in the dirt. Are You Going To Stand There And Talk Weird All Night? is the result of a year's worth of writing through unexpected loss and spiritual recovery. Working with meditative and spatial elements, Valleys aims to blur the lines between noise, melody, repetition and space results in a dark, mysterious and cinematic quality to their sound.
Recorded and co-produced by Alec "Orson Presence" Dippie from the legendary British post punk group The Monochrome Set, "Are You Going To Stand There And Talk Weird All Night?" was released on Kanine Records on April 30, 2013.
