Sam Bardsley and Rhys Knowles of The Valleys played an absolute banger at GOLDEN PE∆KS on Thursday night showcasing their album released earlier this year.
Hailing from Bridgend, Wales THE VALLEYS say:
“If we have to be pigeon holed, lets say ‘Welsh Trance’. We’re not trance, but you get the idea.”
With hints of more psychedelic influences creeping in on their pared back sound they skate along the outer realms of minimal mellow dub - reverb and delay is punctuated by heavy electronic rhythms and layers of looped sounds and vocals, that literally take you way out before drawing you in. Close.
Basically its your ultimate summer soundtrack.
