"Postpunk chansons somewhere between Charlotte Gainsbourg and Malaria" Siegessäule (DE)
“The French-Caribbean singer, keeps transgressing genre boundaries and has built, throughout her career, a fascinating link between music, performance art and fashion” - The 405
Berlin based artist, Valerie Renay is presenting live, the songs from her debut solo album “Your Own Shadow”, co-produced by Alexander Paulick-Thiel (Kreidler).
The L.P is a collection of empowering and ethereal songs that exude dreamy, dark electronic scents with a visceral twist. An opus full of contrasts, taking the listener through the whole spectrum of human emotions. Music for fast moving clouds!
The stage show is raw and sensual, with Valerie delivering a dramatic and emotionally charged vocal performance. Poignant stories are delivered in English and French over layers of synths, guitar, and hypnotic bass lines, bouncing off bewitching tribal beats.
Brutal and soulful at once, each concert can only be described as a ritualistic experience oozing with punk attitude.
Valerie Renay (one half of Noblesse Oblige) is a versatile performer, musician, painter and healer. Fresh from performing Hive Rise at CTM Festival 2020 at Berghain and getting ready to sing in contemporary opera “Aids Follies” at Brut Vienna in February, Valerie keeps testing her new material while playing concerts internationally.
“Your Own Shadow” is out on all digital platforms
