The Virgance

The Virgance is the recorded work of Nathan Smith, a UK-based artist specialising in instrumental shoegaze, dream pop, ambient, post rock and noise rock. During 2014-15, three guitar-based albums were released in quick succession via the netlabel El Vals del Conejo, to critical acclaim in the online shoegaze community and blogosphere. Halloween 2017 saw a radical evolution of the Virgance sound with the release of 'Worship The Moon', an imagined horror soundtrack boasting a diverse range of sounds, swapping guitars for organ, electric piano, synthesizers and sound design. For the fifth and final LP, Smith returns to his signature guitar sound whilst maintaining a strong synth presence. 'Flying V' arrives Spring/Summer 2019.
