Hurt Valley, the enigmatic folk-pop project of Los Angeles’ Brian Collins, has shared a new single from his forthcoming debut album Glacial Pace.

Due out on the 6th December, the record is inspired by Death Valley and also features the previously shared single Apartment Houses. It is available for pre-order from Bandcamp here.

But for now, theĀ pastoral twang of opening trackĀ Geology Dreamer is a delight – stream it here.



Hurt Valley, the enigmatic folk-pop project of California songwriter Brian Collins, will release his debut album Glacial Pace on 6th December via the wonderful Woodsist label.

Collins’ life has taken him from playing in punk bands as a teenager in the DC area to his current role as the head of the science department at a Hollywood high school. He wrote the sun-drenched songs of Glacial Pace after a trip to Death Valley – coming across a clearing full of burnt out, vandalized vehicle carcasses inspired him to write about desolation and the things we leave behind.

The first single is the gorgeously melancholic Apartment Houses – well worth three minutes of your day we’d suggest!
