chad valley

Jonquil member Hugo Manuel released his debut album as Chad Valley last November via Cascine. The album, which features guest appearances by Twin Shadow, El Perro del Mar, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, is glistening dancepop that takes '80s influences and brings them into the now. (His voice is, at times, eerily reminiscent of Tears for Fears' Roland Orzibal.) You can stream the whole thing below.

Chad Valley are going on tour this spring, including two shows in NYC; April 12 at Glasslands with Rush Midnight (tickets); and Mercury Lounge on April 13 with Selebrities (tickets). All Chad Valley dates are listed below.

If you're interested in seeing the openers for both of Chad Valley's NYC shows before April, Rush Midnight and Selebrities are playing together with Bowmont and fellow Cascine recording artist Wildarms on DJ duty at Glasslands on Thursday (2/28). Tickets are still available and the flyer for that show is below.
