Song of the Day: Chad Valley – Fast Challenges

Jonquil

Toronto – How talented is this guy? Chad Valley is the solo moniker of Jonquil lead singer Hugo Manuel. While the latter is a rousing uplifting jangly poppish band with love of pianos and horns, Chad Valley happily resides in samples and synthesizer land. The result is a lush, ambient Fred Falkesque dance/lounge martini track called “Fast Challenges.” It’s off the upcoming EP Equatorial Ultravox, which is released one day after my birthday – June 20th. Check out the track

ps. I almost didn’t check out this band because Chad Valley to me screams country music singer, not electro dancefloor bliss. I should probably stop judging bands based on band names.
