Wednesday, February 19, 2020, Valerinne and Methadone Skies will play at Control Club.
The show is part of the winter tour that will reach Brasov, Cluj-Napoca and Timisoara as well.
Bucharest based band Valerinne came together in early 2012, when Alexandru Das (guitar/soundscapes), Liviu Stoicescu (bass) and Mircea Smarandache (drums), joined efforts in their desire to play instrumental, atmospheric, haunting, loud and emotional music, completed by live visuals.
Valerinne’s music takes an organic approach to the post-rock genre. The compositions are ample and dramatic, almost soundtrack-like and evoke a wide range of mental images. The sound spectrum swings from dreamy and fragile to gloomy walls of noise and harsh brutal droning sound intensity.
The band released its debut album, Kunstformen der Natur, in late 2012. Since then they have embarked on a European tour together with Bucharest ambient/drone band Environments, have shared the stage with Amenra, Rosetta, North, Environments, Atlantis, Maybeshewill, Tides from Nebula, Our Ceasing Voice, Stephen O’Malley and have played at the 2013 Dunk! Festival.
At the end of 2013, the band released its second album, Arborescent, which takes the aesthetic of their first release further, yet sounds completely different, and in 2016 they have released their third album, Monumenta and a split EP with TAUUSK, Telemetry.

Methadone Skies are an independent, psychedelic rock band from Timisoara, Romania. Active since 2009, the group has released 4 full-length records and one EP so far.
2019 also marks the group’s 10th anniversary and the best way to celebrate it is by playing gigs and unveil new music. Thus, in May 2019, their 4th studio album, Different Layers of Fear saw the light of day through their own imprint, Haywire Records. Featuring 7 songs that stretch over 72 minutes, this is undoubtedly the most diverse and grandiose effort so far. Incorporating all their strengths and taking steps forward, these songs represent everything Methadone Skies is about without losing the sonic identity.
