Chad Valley releases Equatorial Ultravox EP - stream "Fast Challenges"

Chad Valley will be touring behind his recently released EP, Equatorial Ultravox, the follow up his acclaimed self-titled debut, which Pitchfork praised as "another fresh take on Balearic bliss." Both are available now on experimental pop label Cascine.

After a set of debut performances earlier this year at SXSW and in NYC, Chad Valley will return to North America in mid-September, hitting major markets in the US and Canada.

Chad Valley also heads the calypso-pop quintet, Jonquil, and is the founding member of the Blessing Force Collective. After releasing his solo debut EP as Chad Valley last winter, he became one of the most blogged-about artists in Europe and the US and received significant radio attention with plays across the BBC.
