Avant-pop artist Valery Gore is thrilled to announce the release of Idols In The Dark Heart by sharing the album’s first single, “Amsterdam.” Idols In The Dark Heart follows Gore’s sophomore release Avalanche to Wandering Bear that saw Toronto’s Gore described by Exclaim! as “quite possibly the most underrated sonic artist in this or any other country, breathing new life into traditional song forms with idiosyncratic melodies, subtly complex rhythms and eclectic arrangements that reveal an expansive listening palate.”
Idols In The Dark Heart charters a course across the turbulent waters of human relationships, encountering love, loss, and the shadows of nostalgia and doubt. Navigated by Gore’s throaty, candid voice, the listener is swept through a lush and lyrical paradise filled with synth melodies, confident acoustics and low Moog bass lines. The end result is an exquisitely crafted blend of woven harmonies and melodic hooks that feels like a journey to exotic shores.
