hmv's Next Big Thing... #255 Sky Valley Mistress
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you stoner rock firebrands Sky Valley Mistress...
Who Are They?
Sky Valley Mistress consist of singer Kayley Davies, guitarist Sean Berry, drummer Maxwell Newsome III and wonderfully named bassist Russell Russell.
Blackburn natives, the foursome formed in 2012 and have steadily been building towards their debut album. Now signed up with label New Heavy Sounds, they're readying the LP.
Their debut album, Faithless Rituals, will be us at the end of March. It was recorded with Queens Of The Stone Age key man Dave Catching at his Rancho de la Luna studio in California. It's a match made in heaven.
What Do They Sound Like?
The band offer up big desert rock guitars and powerful percussion, complimented by Davies' voice. Think The Duke Spirit backed by Queens Of The Stone Age, with dashes of Dry era PJ Harvey, early Nick Cave and vintage Iggy Pop hurled in.
Why Should I Be Excited?
The above sounds pretty good to us.
Can I Hear Something?
Absolutely. Enjoy the stonking 'Skull & Pistons'...
