Crush of the Day: Sweet Valley – ‘Eternal Champ’


Sweet Valley


Now adopted by Nathan Williams (from Wavves) and his brother Joel for their latest musical project, the name ‘Sweet Valley’ is a throwback to the wildly popular 90’s book series revolving around blonde Californian twins Jessica and Elizabeth. Sibling parallels aside, Sweet Valley’s music also evokes shimmery summer vibes as its name suggests, mixing schizophrenic dashes of hip-hop beats, lo-fi fuzz, old-school video game samples and sparkling electronica into a deliciously heady cocktail. Signed to Fool’s Gold Records, Sweet Valley describes themselves as a “Bermuda Triangle-like place, where cannabis crumbs, spilt beer, record dust and that mysterious shit you had to blow out of game cartridges all collect as if pulled by some gigantic junkyard magnet”. All I can say is: damn right.
