premiere: hear Chad Valley’s glorious new single “Up Again”
We’ve been trying to tell y’all chillwave never left, and today the man Hugo Manuel aka Chad Valley proves us right by coming through with the smoothest, sweetest, most blissful Balearic-pop dream. And although Manuel is rightfully not a huge fan of the often dismissive “chillwave” tag, “Up Again” is a gleaming embodiment of everything that made us champion the most transcendent examples of the genre since day one. We’re psyched to debut the heartfelt track, and the romantic, pillowy b-side “LA in August“, both taken from his brand new single, out today via Cascine. Chad Valley will support Yumi Zouma on their little West Coast run later this month, before traversing the rest of the U.S. with JR JR into early November. Check all of his dates here.
