Chad Valley
Imaginary Music

For his third LP as Chad Valley, Oxford musician Hugo Manuel decided to follow his pop instincts. Ditching the collaboration-heavy approach of his previous record, Imaginary Music sees Manuel settling comfortably into role of auteur. The resulting album is replete with heady electro-pop that recalls Prefab Sprout, electro Arcade Fire and the softer edges of Daft Punk’s Discovery. If they do another Drive movie, the likes of ‘LA In August’ and ‘Impartial’ could crop up in the soundtrack.

Chad Valley
Equatorial Ultravox Addendum

Chad Valley prepares dance floor friendly electronica with keening vocals and punch the air synth motifs and here we get a vinyl re-issue of his earlier EP now with two tracks added and a remix which appeared on the zombie flick 'Warm Bodies'.  His live set is described as 'the best in the business' by the confident press release and he has supported Erasure and Foals to help back up this claim. 

Chad Valley
Entirely New Blue

Chad Valley, in this case, is a writer of colourful and openly expressive pop songs and not a manufacturer of children’s toys. His second album, Entirely New Blue is a complex album of depth and maturity showing that he is progressing in the right direction. His career thus far has seen him collaborate with the likes of Twin Shadow, Glasser and Active Child and have high-profile support slots with the likes of Erasure and Foals.
