Hanging Valleys – Fundamentals

Fundamentals is new ultra-chill track from British duo Hanging Valleys.

By Graeme Smith

We first discovered Hanging Valleys through their cavernous track Fortaleza and were enraptured by the delicacy and minimalism of their music. Fundamentals continues in the same vein, at times one step above pure silence. The track tackles the idea that life isn’t always “eggs royale and sunsets” and there are tough periods too. You can hear this through the downbeat, almost non-existence.

There are swells of guitar and percussion too and vocals that fans of Bon Iver will love. If you’re not converted yet, check out Fundamentals below.
