With ‘Valley Low’, southern Gothic chanteuse Betty Black invites listeners into her world where vivid transfixing narratives and contagious melodies laced with psychedelic rock, ‘60’s pop exotica, gritty electro-pop and dark post-punk beckon you down the rabbit hole. Produced by Sylvia Black and co-produced by Rudyard Lee Cullers (Yeah Yeah Yeahs/ Basement Jaxx/James Iha), the set includes singles “Come Back Lover”, Heartless” and the tripped-out title track alongside fiery rockers “Black Car” and “Baby Loves His Gun”, and the sultry tranquilized ballad “Drive”.
— Think Ronnie Spector and The Cramps meet Siouxsie and the Banshees, Ennio Morricone and The Raveonettes —
