Somewhere around the three minute mark, “Hound” stops being a bit of pop escape, and becomes something that instead makes you dwell in the space Valleys wrote this song from. “There is no hiding now or ever / There’s no escape for us it seems.” The music music swells and satisfies, and every line of the lyrics deliver haunting surreality that’s a pleasure to hear created. Valleys‘ new album, Are You Going To Sit There and Talk Weird All Night, is out April 29 via Kanine Records. For now, savor the six minutes below.
