Valravn is currently working on their 3rd studio album, to be released in 2013. With the second album ”Koder på snor”, Valravn took new steps towards an even more personal music, which is true to its Nordic roots but is equally a child of the present and the future. Edgy, atmospheric and deliciously fearless, Valravn drags the listener on a mental and musical journey over sweeping forests and deep into moody waters.

Valravn. Artist Bio

Valravn is currently working on their 3rd studio album, to be released in 2013.

With the second album ”Koder på snor”, Valravn took new steps towards an even more personal music, which is true to its Nordic roots but is equally a child of the present and the future.

Edgy, atmospheric and deliciously fearless, Valravn drags the listener on a mental and musical journey over sweeping forests and deep into moody waters. The result is strange and wonderful, intensely outlandish and utterly hypnotic.
On the album as much as live, the charismatic Faroe Islands singer Anna Katrin Egilstrøð is the narrative heart of Valravn - with a rare and very efficient dynamic, she moves from storm to stillness with the natural ease of the sea rising with the tide.
Transforming the traditional into the extraordinary, Valravn finds an edgy drama that is just downright fierce, painting a landscape that is thoroughly modern but with ancient callings.
A stunning, headlong leap into folktronica.

The band debuted in 2007 with the self-titled album “Valravn”. Their blend of electronics, raw energy and Nordic folk roots took audiences as well as critics by storm. The album was nominated for three Danish Music Awards.
Valravn has toured extensively in Denmark and Europe, having played festivals and venues in Germany, Norway, The Netherlands, Finland, France and Switzerland, to name a few. Highlights include Roskilde Festival, Spot Festival, by:Larm and TFF Rudolstadt.
