After a string of great moments on Clan Analogue’s last three compilation albums, Valley Forge release their double A-side debut EP Follow Suit, spanning classic electro-pop and club sounds through to melodic introspective indietronica.
“downbeat indie synth-pop that fuses twinkling electronic landscapes with slow, clattering beats and swelling vocal harmonies”
Opening track ‘Follow Suit’ features guest vocals and guitar from Glen Cassidy of Sydney duo So I’m Jo, bringing his lo-fi bedroom electronics sensibility to the studio for this collaboration. ‘Follow Suit’ is also presented with an exclusive new remix by the legendary and reclusive Single Gun Theory, emerging out of a dream for this one ethereal moment.
Bonus double-A-side ‘Machine-Built Rhythm’ bridges the club sounds of the last twenty years with remixes from Clan Analogue nu-disco comrades Koshowko and Sydney’s prodigal synth-pop sons Boxcar, ending their exile from Australian dance music by delivering three globe-trotting monster remixes bounced during production between studios in New York and Sydney.
Valley Forge produce a genetic fusion of cinematic electronic textures and rhythms of machine-like precision. The Valley Forge debut album Artificial Heart will be released on Clan Analogue later this year.
Follow Suit is available on CD from Waterfront, Red Eye, JB Hi-Fi other good music retailers. It is also available in non-physical format from iTunes and other online retailers.
The Follow Suit EP is one of four new EPs released by Clan Analogue showcasing the work of the collective’s newest artists, along with new EPs by fellow Sydney-siders Lunar Module and Melbourne bands Koshowko and Tiatto.
