Due for release on Friday 11th November, debut LP “Chains” comes in the form of a very limited edition transparent blood red vinyl. Released, aptly, into a political landscape of upheaval and unrest, “Chains”, with its provocative slant, is set to strike a chord with people the world over. The ten tracks, whose retro riffs hark back to the likes of the Velvet Underground, will not disappoint.

The internet is down so I’m going to actually have to listen to the music for once rather than looking at the press release and forming immediate ill-judged opinions.
Here is another one on Wrong Way records on lovely red vinyl and again like the Valkary’s record it sounds a little like Mazzy Star. The vocal delivery is much like Hope Sandoval but only about 30% as sultry. No-one is as sultry as our Hope - she should come with a government health warning for sex starved middle aged men. What I’m liking about opener ‘Livin’ Time’ (no idea where the ‘g’ went) is the marvellous violin/viola that skirls around the thing. After a few minutes of a slow trudge they decide to slowly rock which brings about a hitherto unseen intensity to their sound. I think by the time ‘Crazy Bones’ rolls around I have their sound pinned - a messier, dirtier take on Mazzy Star - only to be thrown for a loop when the Stones-y 'Tes Yeux De Velours’ sets sail and even more so with the rackety ‘Vacant Soul’ which has a bluesy raucousness and a gritty authenticity. They have moments of quietness too - ‘You Blew Away My Soul’ has the drift of soft desert winds. It’s on tracks like this where that violin really pays for itself. It has a lonely evocative feel that is perfect for this kind of loose, semi freeform rock. More please.
