My Bloody Valentine don’t behave like most other rock bands. But, then again, the Irish group, led by singer-guitarist Kevin Shields, don’t sound like most other groups. They’re finally touring North America for the first time in almost five years. Although My Bloody Valentine have been around since the early 1980s, they’ve released only three full-length albums in that time. Their most recent release was MBV in 2013, a typically sprawling collection of Shields’ intimate, muted vocals buried in rich layers of noise and distortion. Shields’ musical obsessions center on finding the beauty and melodies within shape-shifting clouds of pure fuzz and volume, which are then crowned with his contrastingly laid-back crooning. Many musicians try to emulate that sonic duality, but My Bloody Valentine do it in a way that’s distinctively engrossing.
