You already know Vallis Alps. Now meet davey, the solo project of the duo’s David Ansari.
In 2018, Ansari moved from Sydney to New York, which resulted in a rethink of the music he was making. This project is a world away from the sound of Vallis Alps, but every bit as powerful.
Abandoning rigid rules of pop songwriting and the pursuit of beauty-centric art, davey’s music attempts to make sense of – and reflect back – the all-consuming stresses of modern life, holding a mirror up to the absurdity that surrounds us.
A heavy use of sampling and great experience in electronic production results in a hard hitting alt-hip hop sound.
