the world created in ‘the hanging valley’ sits somewhere between neu!’s obsession with ‘moving music’ and sauna youth’s nihilist but tuneful post punk.

the underlying pulse that they create from a solid motoric beat and a wooden shjips style approach to unrelenting bass draws you in before the clattering guitar and the vocals (somewhere between eagulls and wire) push you over the edge. the resulting sound is intensely insular and claustrophobic In a way many attempt but few succeed at. “’the hanging valley’ blends whooshing motoric drums, a lyrical archness reminiscent of wire and a love of repetition that borders on pathological” – 7/10, uncut
