Download of the Week

“Journey into Golden” by Valley Hush

Here’s what we know: Valley Hush creates exactly the kind of music you might assume they make based on the band’s super chill name. It’s electronic pop with an ethereal bent; soaked in synthy rain clouds and adorned with magic hour melodies. Valley Hush is comprised of vocalist Lianna Vanicelli and producer of sound, Alex Kaye. Their next show is January 10th at the Loving Touch in Ferndale.
