Wrong Way Records are proud to present The Valkarys, a Scottish psychedelic/garage rock quintet who are thinkers, believers and doers.
Formed in Edinburgh, and having had a stint in London, they consist of Scott Dunlop – guitar and lead vocals, Sarah Ross – vocals and percussion, Kier Lavin – guitar, Stephen Paget – bass and Wayne Hoy – drums. Drawing influences from the likes of The Beatles, Velvet Underground, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Bob Dylan and The Verve when one listens to both their back catalogue and the new release, these shine through in abundance.
The Valkarys are no strangers to this business. Having formed in 2006 they have two EPs and two albums under their belt to date. Debut album The Average can Blind you to the Excellent (2010) was lauded by Carl Barat of The Libertines, who played tracks at his London club nights. This was followed by EPs Psychodelica (a play on words in tribute to two fellow Scottish bands; Primal Scream and Jesus & the Mary Chain) in 2013 and Chloroform in 2014 before second album (Just Like) Flying with God was released in 2015.
Backseat mafia are privileged to present the first track taken from their forthcoming EP Since I Was Fifteen which will be released on 28th October 2016 on 10” orange vinyl and digital download.
