Hanging Valleys is an alternative band founded by Thom Byles in 2016. Thom is an English-Mexican
singer-songwriter based in Greenwich, London. He plays acoustic guitar in an unusual manner combining percussive and melodic phrases overlaid by falsetto vocal harmonies. Thom is joined by Mike Philips (guitar, vocals) and Alexis Meridol (beats, sampler). Their music has received support from Radio X, Radio 1, BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio as well as Q and Time Out magazines.
Although very much its own sound, Hanging Valleys have been likened to the music of Bon Iver and José Gonzalez.
