In The Valley Below (Angela Gail and Jeffrey Jacob), have announced a fall tour supporting Tricky. The tour comes on the heels of their just released EP, Elephant. Gail and Jacob meld adventurous art rock, squelchy synth pop, harmony-laden Americana and woozy blues into something altogether different: stylistically elusive, yet oddly inclusive, filled with “dueling sexual tension and energy," says Buffalo News.
“Socially aware and sonically satisfying,” says Impose Magazine, the first single from Elephant, “Bloodhands (Oh My Fever)”, was inspired by the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. The song ends with the benediction of a soaring gospel choir led by Grand Rapids phenom Debra L. Perry. The music video is a surrealist cinematic endeavor touching on race, religion and sexuality and how we will all end up in the hands of our children.
After years in LA, In The Valley Below self released a 5-song EP and shortly after signed to several record labels across the globe. The full-length debut album, The Belt, spawned the hit single, “Peaches”, which first found the airwaves in Europe, debuting on BBC Radio One and climbing the charts in France and Germany, becoming #1 on French Alternative radio. Over a year later, it became a staple on US alternative radio, a testament to the enduring viral power of its sunny yet smoldering songcraft and celebratory surrender to mutual attraction. Performances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, and other international appearances as well as solid touring in Europe and the US, including festivals like Reading and Leeds, Austin City Limits, Rock En Seine, and more, have led to a dedicated worldwide fan base.
Fresh off a summer headlining tour, In The Valley Below's live show has been described as "Mesmerizing... Transcendental and full of energy" by Cryptic Rock. The live three piece will be performing songs from their EP Elephant and favorites from The Belt . About touring with Tricky, they say they are "humbled and inspired to share the stage with the legend".
