VALINA from Linz, Austria release their third album in spring 2008, recorded with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago.
VALINA develop their unique way to combine passages of sheer beauty with intense outbursts of abstract guitar noise. how VALINA use harmony & dis-harmony, sound & silence is innovative and sounds precise and clear.
In short: three musicians follow their way and their musical and political concepts unflustered by discussions about downloads, music- business crisis, emo-hypes, marketing strategies – and, most important, know how to write a way cool rock song...
They toured Europe and the US many times and are currently working on their first tour in mexico.
What John Congleton / PAPER CHASE had to say:
...tight song structures, rapid-fire drum attack, tumbling low end, aggressive guitar skronk and razor sharp lyrics; Valina has boiled these songs down to their essentials and produced their most concise
statement to date. Every note on this new album is delivered with confidence and urgency.
