With a previous appearance on Petrola 80’s ‘Embrace’ compilation on the blissful closing track ‘Restless Victory’ Merdh Laleh is now set to release his debut full length ‘Water For Your Eyes’ on June 14th through the Copenhagen-based label.

Merdh Laleh aka. Valdemar Kragelund’s blissful and fragile take on experimental electronic music stretches across the album to create a unique sound, defined by soothing choir pads, smouldering drones and hidden details crackling through the surface, giving ‘Water For Your Eyes’ a particular depth making the album well-worth numerous revisits. 



Check out the single “H4twag” below:

Featuring guest appearances from the talented saxophone player Maria Dybroe and drummer Kristian Isholm, the album is said to represent an electro-acoustic venture into ambient soundscapes balancing between calm and chaos, making the album feel refreshingly in its own pocket due to its blend of warm, natural instrumentation with eerie, shivering electronic drones.

Head over to Petrola 80’s Bandcamp to pre-order the record and follow this link to RSVP for the Merdh Laleh release party at Mayhem on June 14th.
