in the valley below debut album hymnal

Echo Park-based duo In The Valley Below is pleased to announce their debut EP entitled Hymnal, to be released April 1st via French label Oskar. The band will be supporting Kodaline on an upcoming UK tour, see all dates below.

Vocalist Angela Gail puts it frankly: In The Valley Below make “mostly music that we would want to listen to,” an honest and unapologetic statement from the Los Angeles duo, rounded out by vocalist/guitarist Jeffrey Jacob. In The Valley Below is a new musical pairing delivering hushed swirls of male and female vocals forged with dark stories of brooding riddles and romance. Jeffrey grew up in the storied musical town of Memphis, given a guitar at the age of 13 and creating music from that point forward. Angela left the binding depths of a “mostly cold and cloudy town in Michigan,” for a life at sea, finding initial songwriting inspiration while living on a small boat in the West Indies. In The Valley Below was created when these two found each other, having crossed paths in artistic circles after they separately made their way to Los Angeles. The duo honed their craft together, using faithful archetypes as their inspiration, “Our biggest inspiration is powerful subjects like sex, crime and religion. And how that fits into the lives we’ve chosen, our dreams and struggles, mistakes and heartbreaks.”

In The Valley Below produce and record their songs, mixed by John Congleton (St. Vincent, The Mountain Goats, David Byrne).
