Howl in the Valley releases EP Rock Candy Sessions

Up and Coming Folk-Rock band Howl in the Valley have dropped their latest three-track collection ‘Rock Candy Sessions’.

Having a range of different instrumentation throughout each track, from the harmonica, to the calming sound of the acoustic guitar, adding in that slight tap on the tambourine.

Some elements really bring in that Folk sound however on the track ‘Driva’ that infuses the Rock element, by adding in that slighter heavier riff on the electric guitar and amping up the volume through the instrumentation. The vocals use a lot more volume, rather than the previous track which was very mellow and soothing.

The end track is definitely the one that stands out the most, you really hear the pure roar emotion that comes seeping through the vocals, as the tone is kept at a steady pace and having that rather brittle tone in places. Using the guitar as the main instrument for this one, giving it it’s own time to play the calming riffs in a short guitar solo.

Howl in the Valley has created a really mesmerising collection of stripped-back songs, it’s just them with their instruments in all their glory and it’s really impressive.
