If David Lynch was inclined to include some wavy ambient indie Hip Hop to one of his soundtracks, I could imagine he’d opt for something a little like “Stay Awake This is the Valley”; the latest single to be released by the up and coming experimental artist and producer Nuna.
There really is no encapsulating in words just how dark and mesmerically moody the soundscape is – it’s bordering on phantasmal. Yet, instead of the single giving you the fear, the downtempo and stripped back beats pack in enough reverb for a Shoegaze comparison to be made as the wavy layers interweave and overlap as the momentum is amplified as Nuna whispers his hypnotically illegible vocals over the mix. In short, it’s one sweet emotive hit of catharsis.
