Bucharest’s experimental drone/ambient band ENVIRONMENTS are releasing a new album in middle of March 2013. It’s called “Fraktal” and it’s promoted by the first single called “An Unconditional Love For Bad Weather”.
Building on their previous work, the new material takes their blend of slow rhytms, repetitive drum and piano figures and beautiful and meditative ambiental parts even further and expand it with minimal guitar bursts and freely phasing drones.
The album also includes a collaboration with Belgian artist Mathieu Vandekerckhove, known for his work with bands like Amenra, Syndrome or Kingdom and who will also perform at the album launch event on March 16th in Bucharest with his experimental project, Syndrome.
Like their first two records, Fraktal was also recorded at Next Dog Studio, a remote studio placed by the river Mostistea, far away from the overcrowded romanian capital.
The artwork created by Romanian artist Alexandru Daș was largely inspired by naturally occurring fractals which have also been the main inspiration for the visual part of the first song released from the album.
After the release, the trio will embark on a small european tour alongside post-rock / post-punk band, Valerinne, and will play in countries like Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Belgium and Slovenia.
“Fraktal” will be available for digital download as well as on vinyl.
