Montreal-based trio Valleys is comprised of Marc St Louis, Matilda Perks, and Pascal Oliver.
Enriching the intimacy of lo-fi with bold experimentation, psychedelic folk and haunting melodies, Valleys forge delicate vignettes soaked in a swirling ocean of electronic haze, stripped guitars, ghostly vocals, feedback and sparse percussion through a shimmering dream-pop cloudscape.
Juxtaposing shadow and light, warmth and frigidity, melancholy and hope, Valleys explore unknown sonic lands with the hushed intensity of the meditative Montreal winters from which it has been born.
Like snow falling on deserted streets at midnight, there is a beautiful mystery of strength and fragility to Valleys that can never be solved, but only heard on quiet nights before it drifts away again.
