“SKY VALLEY MISTRESS mean business as they come swaggering out of Blackburn to set hips shaking and pulses racing with a blend of dirty blues and raw rock and roll”. – The Blues Magazine.
After a hugely successful year of touring, including an appearance at last year’s Download Festival and release of their acclaimed debut EP, ‘the best thing you’ve never heard,’ the band are now releasing their new EP, ‘Rivals, Hounds & Rebel Sisters’.
‘Rivals, Hounds & Rebel Sisters’ is a short but direct 3 track EP that is filled with riffs, hooks and more riffs. Combined with vocals that ooze sultry sophistication and a thunderous rhythm section, this is a record from a band that has found their sound and is ready for the world to hear it. Set for release 15th December, the record comes both as a digital download and 6 panel digipak CD that can be pre ordered from their Bandcamp page:
With clear influences from legendary rock and roll bands such as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, the band have applied this classic, mature craftsmanship to their songs with a powerful and assertive edge, giving them a refreshingly familiar sound.
Along with the release of their EP, the band have also released a music video for the lead single, ‘Smoke Fairy’, featuring a masked teenage gang of rebels taking their new member on a journey of initiation, on the back of their pickup truck.
