:: I just got back from vacation in Norway. WEVAL’s new EP was the perfect soundtrack to exploring the cold and snowy landscapes.
WEVAL are Harm Coolen (born 1986) and Marijn Scholte Albers (born 1989) from Amsterdam, Netherlands. The electronic music duo met in 2010 while working in film industry and decided to team up as they discovered their shared passion for electronica. Having released their debut EP Half Age in March 2013 via Atomnation, WEVAL signed to Cologne’s Kompakt label in September and announced Easier – their sophomore EP and first release for Kompakt.
Easier was released on November 24, 2014 via Kompakt. You can buy the digital EP from iTunes or Beatport or you order your physical copy of Easier directly from Kompakt. Germany saw release alongside the 12″ vinyl EP already on November 21.
Listen to the entire EP above (via WEVAL’s Soundcloud). The duo are having a handful of live shows coming up, including an appearance at Magnetic Fields Festival in New Delhi, India. Check out the dates below.
