About Red Valley Nursery
Red Valley Nursery pulls the pin on a grenade and throws it right in your lap. You will quickly need to accept that your relationship with them is one of total controlled chaos. They are as unpredictable as they are charismatic, weaving thought-provoking lyrics with dirty riffs and grooves. The boys in RVN have a reputation of delivering an explosive experience of raw tones, psychedelic breaks, and witty banter… all done with a crooked smile.
Most of the songs from the record stem from old tracks I had in my late teens. There was something about them I just couldn’t let go of. When the guys in RVN and I started playing together, these songs fell in line like they’ve always lived there with us. The album itself doesn’t necessarily have a theme, it’s all a bit unstable, chaotic, and raw. And I like that, there’s something about that uncertainty that I find super attractive. We had the pleasure of working with Drew Mazurek (Foo Fighters, LCD Soundsystem, Jawbox) on the record. He took those grooves and dirty tones and just locked them in. It’s surreal to see them finally take form after all these years and I’m elated to finally share them.Steven Thomas
