Bucharest based band Valerinne was formed in early 2012 by Alexandru Das (quitar/soundscapes), Liviu Stoicescu (bass) and Mircea Smarandache (drums), out of the desire to play instrumental music without any constraints and traditional chorus-verse-chorus song structures. The result is an atmospheric, haunting loud and emotional music, completed by the live visuals made by Anke.

This led to the debut album Kunstformen der Natur, released by Romanian label Asiluum. The album was recorded live at Next Dog Studio near Bucharest and was mixed and mastered by Marius Costache in September 2012. It contains five pure instrumental pieces with a mix of post rock, post metal, shoegaze, and post punk. The album can be downloaded for free from bandcamp and from Asiluum Records. The album will be released also as a digipack CD with cover art by Alexandru Das.

Valerinne’s music is an organic approach in the post-rock genre. The compositions are spanning and dramatic like a soundtrack and evoke a wide range of mental images. The soundscapes are composed in layers infiltrated by arcs of suspense, yet avoiding the loud-quiet-loud clichees so common these days in the post-rock sounds. The sound spectrum swings from dreamy and fragil to gloomy walls of noise and harsh brutal and droning sound intensity.

Their first show was held in Bucharest at Bastilia Bookshop in June 2012 and in September they shared the stage with Kultika (Romania Timisoara) and Maybeshewill (UK). They will share the stage with the Polish band Tides from Nebula in Cluj-Napoca and in Bucharest at the end of October, and for the next year they plan to tour and record the second album, which they have already starded to work on.
