Valparaiso (feat. Phoebe Killdeer & Howe Gelb) – Rising Tides

Valparaiso is a Paris based collective, with HervΓ© and Thierry Mazurel – formerly of French cult act Jack The Ripper – as its core members. They named the project after the Chilean seaport Valparaiso, which has always been a beacon for travellers and sailors. The band symbolizes a harbour that welcomes artists who stay for a while, leave and may come back.

The guest singers on Valparaiso’s new single Rising Tides are Phoebe Killdeer and Howe Gelb. Killdeer is best known as singer with the band Nouvelle Vague. With her own band The Short Straws she recorded The Fade Out Line, which was reworked by The Avener and became an international hit as Fade Out Lines.

The original, instrumental version of Rising Tides was the theme of the film β€˜2 Temps, 3 Mouvements’ in 2014. This new, vocal version was produced by John Parish, best known for his work with PJ Harvey. The song sounds like a murder ballad to me. Remember Where The Wild Roses Grow by Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue?

Rising Tides is the first music to be released of Valparaiso’s upcoming album Broken Homeland, to be released 22 September.
