No Valley have released a second track from their upcoming album, Over Time Scattered, which due out on January 14th. 'A Bird With No Feathers' shows way more promise than 'Charlie Don't Surf', No Valley's first single.

Wayne Memmer, the man behind No Valley, did everything on this track but play the drums. Memmer clearly has a fondness for Big Apple post-punk. The guitars jangle with a fair amount of reverb. Synths provide foreboding undercurrents.

There's a strong rhythm. The bass and drums - provided by Nikolai Middlebrook - drive hard beneath the atmosphere, vaguely reminiscent of the Pixies.

Memmer's falsetto on the verses is somewhat unsettling, but when the chorus kicks in, 'A Bird With No Feathers' really takes flight.
