UK electronic artist Chad Valley aka Hugo Manuel has debuted a brand new video and remix for “Shell Suite,” taken from his Equatorial Ultravox EP, available now on experimental pop label Cascine. The video is once again directed by Lucy Bridger, who set the wistful tone for Chad Valley’s last single, “Now That I’m Real (How Does It Feel?)” which was featured on NPR. Japanese experimental artist Fourcolor aka Keiichi Sugimoto also returns, putting his own spin on “Shell Suite” after remixing Chad Valley’s single “Up and Down” last year under the moniker FilFla. After a set of debut performances earlier this year at SXSW and in NYC, Chad Valley has returned to North America this week, kicking off a fall tour with Active Child and Com Truise, stopping through New York for this year’s CMJ Music Marathon.
Chad Valley also heads the calypso-pop quintet Jonquil and is the founding member of the Blessing Force Collective. After releasing his solo debut EP as Chad Valley last winter, he became one of the most blogged-about artists in Europe and the US and received significant radio attention with plays across the BBC. Hugo has already performed for audiences in Dublin, Amsterdam, Paris, and Budapest, supporting acts including Amiina, Twin Shadow and Foals, and now North American cities will have the opportunity to see his visionary pop music live.
