Lovely second album from London band who deserve more attention

Morton Valence return with top-notch London guitar pop

A couple of years ago Morton Valence appeared out of nowhere with a fan-financed concept album, Bob and Veronica Ride Again, full of plucky imagination, indie sweetness and Nancy Sinatra vibes. It arrived with a CD-sized novelette and had a faintly burlesque feel that spoke of the group's background as resident band at the Soho Theatre Arts Club. It was an unexpected treat and I'm happy to report that their new one is more than its match.


amazing band. even better people. Let's hope album 2 is the charm. Best thing I've heard in ages and ages.

Timeless work of art - stunning 'difficult' 2nd album.
