We will co-release the first album of our friend Rafel’s solo project “WILLIAM LUKE VALERIO” in the next months along with FORMES DIVERSES DE VIDA on Tape.
Here’s the first song:
William Luke Valerio uses demeaned voices, rotten whispers, spoken-word transitions and field recordings combined with a plain use of guitar to provide an intimate glance to the human realm of absurdity. Lead by the hypnagogic vision of the ‘you must have a goal in your life’ totem (first trap we settle to our own offspring), humans of western societies often develop in a plastic-ruled-careless-reigned-distraction-led-Greenhouse. Here roses are born without shame nor empathy or smell. While the world screams for the release from this (probably self-imposed) constraint, the truth is individuals get born, grow up and die. And everything stays pretty much the same. Well, crooning to the sparks of beauty emanating from this noxious swamp should be fun for sure.
After playing with his all-time-band Purkinje https://purkinjerock.bandcamp.com/album/la-malaltia , Rafel gets to this solo project by accident, since the other bands he was involved with were focused on other musical experimentation fields. Initiating the musical pieces in his room during insomnia-driven nights, the first album of William Luke Valerio (‘He pujat al cel i he vist tots els dimonis dels que fugia’) was recorded in February and will be released by the end of summer 2019. When he is not playing music, he is writing things down, organizing concerts / releasing music with the label/cultural association Formes Diverses de Vida https://fddvida.bandcamp.com/ and since last May, doing research in a neuroscience laboratory. New times, old dreams, same shit forever.
WILLIAM LUKE VALERIO and FLIEßGEWÄSSER will go on a DIY tour in September and if you’d like to help out with a show, please feel free to get in touch: we’ll really appreciate it!
Help needed in Slovenia, Croatia, Hungaria, Austria, South West Germany and Marseille, Montpellier and Lyon
