Valentiine – new single, album & UK tour

Valentiine release their eponymous debut album via Integrity Records on 1st July, preceded by new single ‘Chucky‘ on 17th June, alongside their first headline UK tour.

Valentiine are 3 girls from Melbourne, Australia, who reincarnate the heavy 90’s into something beautiful, dirty pop hooks drowned in the honesty of screaming vocals with seething cheerleader harmonies over the top.

New single ‘Chucky‘ and its video show the band’s dark humour as they recount their own ‘morning after’ hangover blues in graphic detail.

‘Awesome. Disgusting. I love it!’  Ruth Barnes, Amazing Radio

‘Warning: contains disturbing children’s playgroup vomiting scenes’  Classic Rock Magazine

The single’s b-side, is the heavier, moody slow-burn ‘Beauty Lies‘ which has its very own Jerome Velinsky video too.


Chucky‘ follows debut single ‘Love Like‘ which was A-listed, Breakfast Show Record of the Week and was No. 1 in the Amazing Radio chart, B-listed on Bloodstock Radio and received spot plays on Radio 1’s Phil and Alice show, Q and several regional specialist shows.

Valentiine’s 11-track album is out on CD on 1st July via our mailorder page and from select indie record stores around the UK.  It will also be available as a special pre-release from all UK shows and has full European distribution via iTunes (you can pre-order now at Valentiine iTunes pre-order ), Amazon and other download stores.

Futur Primitif’s “Machineteeth” album out now!

Futur Primitif’s brand new album Machineteeth (cat. INT 038) is out now throughout Europe via iTunes, Amazon and other reputable download stores.

The album is also available on CD with a limited edition of the first 1000 copies in a hand screen printed full-colour cover designed and made by Daniel Lefkowitz himself in his workshop in Asheville, NC.  There’s a video of Daniel making those very sleeves on YouTube here: Time (Lapse)

Coming with a full album lyric sheet, these are now available directly via our mailorder page, and at select independent record shops across the UK.


Futur Primitif features the songwriting and vocal talent of Daniel Lefkowitz, former member of American indie-folk darlings The Low Anthem.  Daniel (voice/guitar) is joined in Futur Primitif by Jared Elmore on synths, drum machine and a big mess of cables.

The album Machineteeth was recorded live with a full band made up of members of The Low Anthem in the Columbus Theatre in Providence, Rhode Island, and produced by Ben Knox Miller.  It features singles Digital Space and Nuclear Shockwave which enjoyed support from Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 Music), John Kennedy (XFM) and several DJs on Amazing Radio.

Early reviews of Machineteeth have been extremely positive:

Indie London: “It has a classic American rock vibe reminiscent of Dylan and Mellencamp, dropping some cracking guitar riffs and some strong bluesy numbers en route to its success.”

Penny Black Music:  “an album that is thoughtful and provocative while musically evocative as well.”

Musicosis:  “With lyrics that chill and sounds that build a euphoric rush.”

You can preview and download Machineteeth here:

Daniel plays a solo Futur Primitif show at London Communion on 5th May at Notting Hill Arts Centre and will return to the UK in August for further dates including a show at the End Of The Road Festival.

Digital Space – new Futur Primitif single

Digital Space is the new single by Futur Primitif, the band featuring songwriter and singer Daniel Lefkowitz, former member of American indie-folk darlings The Low Anthem. Daniel (voice/guitar) is joined in Futur Primitif by Jared Elmore on synths, drum machine and a large mess of cables. Their forthcoming album Machineteeth was recorded live with a full band comprised of members of The Low Anthem in the Columbus Theatre in Providence, Rhode Island, and produced by Ben Knox Miller.

Now signed to Integrity for European releases, Futur Primitif’s second single from the album is Digital Space (INT 040), out on 6th May 2013, and follows debut track Nuclear Shockwave which featured on BBC 6 Music, XFM and Amazing Radio.

“Excellent” John Kennedy, XFM “Exceptional … 5/5″ AAA Music

“Velvets go folk … very good” Paul Lester “…dreamy indiefuzz” Pop Dodger

Upon leaving The Low Anthem, Daniel dropped out for two years, living in a yurt in rural Arkansas where he gave up creature comforts in exchange for a more direct connection with the natural systems. Since then, he’s been attempting to reconcile this more intuitive lifestyle with the surrounding globalised digital world. Digital Space is about the confrontation of man and his manufactured environments — in particular the homogenised identi-kit high streets which feature so heavily in most towns and cities.

Both the artwork for the single and its video feature the intriguing work of up-and-coming Ashville-based muralist, Phyliss Vanilla.

Futur Primitif is currently an electric duo, incorporating elements of Velvet Underground era rock, sparse folk, and a fearless approach to the wall of sound. Live UK dates in May will be followed by a further tour in September including an appearance at the End of the Road Festival in Dorset.
