Vailhalen (2019)

Calgary , AB

Chris Vail cut his teeth in the early 2000s with art-pop experimentalists Shecky Forme and noise-rockers XL Birdsuit, but Vailhalen is where his pop instincts and subversive tendencies finally fused, along with a layer of new wave sheen. Revived after a decade’s hiatus, Vailhailen is here to unleash their pop violence once again.
