Valleys: Happiness In Slavery

Montreal gloomy synthpop twosome Valleys are coming to the Cameo Gallery on July 12 for the first time since their release of Are You Going To Stand There And Talk Weird All Night? Marc St. Louis and Matilda “Tillie” Perks derive their sound from loss and emptiness that they’ve experienced in the forms of death and debauchery. Their music sounds crisply atmospheric and melancholy, with underlying elements of hope and wonder—think Frankenstein driving through the Lincoln Tunnel in a Ferrari before a three-day coke bender. If that doesn’t make sense, watch Drive with Ryan Gosling.
