Hugo Manuel has been releasing music under the name Chad Valley since 2010. A longtime signee of the influential Cascine Records, Manuel will release his third full-length album in May 2018, following his sophomore album, Entirely New Blue which saw him traverse the world many times over touring his impressive and mesmerising one-man show.

Young Hunger, Chad Valley’s first full-length album came fully formed in 2012 with an a-list of collaborations from Twin Shadow, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Glasser and caught the attention of Pitchfork, Fader and other mainstream indie media. Hot on the heels on this release came the blockbuster movie Warm Bodies which featured his song Shell Suite and cemented Chad as a enduring favourite and not just a chillwave flash-in-the-pan.

Taking inspiration from his constant touring and nomadic life (the upcoming record was recorded at home in Oxford, UK between tours) the upcoming record is a ode to lost loves, heartbreak and young love... everything that makes pop music pop.


The High Tides

Based out of Nashville, TN. High Tides is the next up and coming band to make waves. High Tides is a three-piece band consisting of Aaron Diebold, Aeris Hennings, and Xavier Bond. Aeris is the frontman of the band with Lead Guitar/Piano/Vocals. Xavier follows up with Rhythm Guitar/Bass. Aaron rounds out the band behind the Drums.

With their main influences coming from 70s-80s rock such as Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, and The Doors. High Tides can be considered a modern-day psychedelic, indie rock band. Andrew Strater of The Deli Magazine said “They explore a sonic niche relying heavily on guitar work, one that could easily be compared to indie rock greats like early Real Estate or Tennis. The group's instrumental work is complimented by a series of synth and lo-fi samples that might well work as spaceship noise in a sci-fi movie.”

Currently, High Tides is working on their first major EP Release, Shake Life, planned to release in early October. Prior to the release, High Tides has teased with a single and music video from the upcoming EP. You can find the single “Living on the Go” on SoundCloud and YouTube.
