Spirit Valley are an Amsterdam-based duo and the latest addition to the ever-growing Fuzz Club family. Their sophomore LP ‘Negatives’ will be released August 4th.
At its darkest, Spirit Valley’s expansive, primal psych-rock falls somewhere between the fuzzed out rock’n’roll of The Black Angels and the warped synths of Moon Duo but 'Negatives' is an album that constantly wrestles its way between light and dark. In Spirit Valley’s lighter, more cinematic moments – such as lead singles ‘Waiting For Real’ and 'TNNLVSSN' – we’re instead hit with a beautifully crushing wall of noise that recalls the gravelly croons of those second-wave post-punk bands (see Interpol or Editors) and glacial, new-wave/almost-gothic synths that could have been plucked right out of the 80s.
Available on /300 white vinyl with gatefold jacket.
