VALLENS // TENNESSEE HAZE (VICE PREMIERE)


VALLENS exclusive world premiere of TENNESSEE HAZE on VICE.COM // BUY HERE

“Vallens, who are influenced by Twin Peaks and recorded their album with a former member of Psychic TV, I was blown away — But name-checking aside, Vallens is actually good. The music is shoegazey, complex, and textured—don’t listen to it because it’s cool, listen to it because it’s a good song. Then buy their new album on Hand Drawn Dracula, a label that continues to be both stylish and full of substance.” ~ VICE.COM

“The music of Rolemodel is often described as “dreamy,” “hazy,” “ethereal” – the list of adjectives with nods to the subconscious go on. This mood defined the pop-meets-shoegaze project’s 2013 full-length, Before Then Was Now, and continues on “Until,” an intoxicating new track” ~ FLAVORWIRE

ETIQUETTE // ATTENTION SEEKER (Video) via NOISEY


ETIQUETTE premiere their new video for “Attention Seeker” (directed by T.Blumas & Ghostprom) on NOISEY today ~ the video “will make you want to find the nearest vehicle and steam up the windows.”

Attention Seeker bears a moody, mellow bassline, akin in vibe to Metronomy’s She Wants. It could also totally have been part of the soundtrack to The Virgin Suicides. All of which is to say Attention Seeker is both dreamy and unsettling and the video is full of shadowy eroticism” ~ NOISEY

Reminisce is available to order now on LP, CD, and Premium Digital via Hand Drawn Dracula // BUY HERE
+ FREE Single FEATURE iTunes (USA) + iTunes New & Noteworthy Feature (CAN)

ETIQUETTE CBC RADIO / Q INTERVIEW & SESSION

“Julie Fader and Graham Walsh of ETIQUETTE – partners in music and life – bring their intoxicating, sultry sound to Studio Q. Their debut record, Reminisce, is a wholly original sonic exploration. Listening feels like wandering foggy city streets in the twilight hours.

The pair join guest host Jelena Adzic to discuss their penchant for collaboration and how their first major project together differs from what came before.” ~ Q

ETIQUETTE // REMINISCE via CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND & CBC


Listen to the premiere stream of ETIQUETTE‘s debut album “Reminisce”, on CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND and First Play on CBC Radio3. “Reminisce” is out March 24th, 2015 via Hand Drawn Dracula // BUY HERE

ETIQUETTE is a collaborative project of producer Graham Walsh (METZ, Viet Cong, Alvvays) and vocalist JULIE FADER.

Walsh’s “synth-heavy production also recalls classic acts like Eurythmics and Depeche Mode, and feels especially hypnotic when paired with Fader’s vocals, steady and feathery like those of Metric’s Emily Haines. ~ From the sparse starts (“Pleasantries”) to the pulsing intensity (“Twinkling Stars”), it’s difficult not to be enveloped by the Canadian natives’ lush and dreamy atmospherics.” ~ CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

“slow, pulsing, dreamy synth clouds and melancholy lyrics, with the occasional blast of uptempo, dancefloor-ready electro” ~ CBC Music
