Valerian Swing are primarily an instrumental band, featuring occasional vocals; always driven by an eclectic and experimental musical vision.

Hailing from Correggio, Italy, the three piece have toured multiple countries, honing an extraordinarily dynamic, frenetic and highly musical brand of sonic curios.

Having recorded their previous album A Sailor Lost Around The Earth with Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Isis, Botch, Russian Circles) at Red Room in Seattle, WA, the trio invited the legendary producer to their home town to record the follow up.

The resulting album A U R O R A, picks up where A Sailor Lost… left off, but, according to Bayles “with more mood, more melodic crescendos and more vocals.”.

The band and the producer set up camp at Igloo Audio Factory in Correggio to record the eight track album, before Bayles returned to Red Room to mix.

Following the release of A Sailor Lost… Valerian Swing took off around the earth themselves, taking in both Europe and America, with a stop at SXSW, and playing shows with Russian Circles, Boris, and This Town Needs Guns among others. A full European tour is in the works for late 2014 in support of A U R O R A, where the band will showcase their unique genre-defying sounds, electrifyingly translated into the live arena.

Track Name: 3 Juno
Waiving down, waiving down
Your earth mother, underwater, we can see each other in space and time
Waiving down, waiving down

We can dive, we can dive
Deep to your last world, straight to this black hole
We can dive, we can dive
Deep to your last world, straight to this black hole
Track Name: Scilla
No turning back now we should start from anywhere, to wait in sidelines
No turning back now, we should start from anywhere, to wait in sidelines
Why can't you tell me when we'll rise
Track Name: In Vacuum
We dive through the water deep to the center of the earth
Spinning around planets
Heading straight in outer space and back here
Listen to this void sound, listen to this void sound
Track Name: Calar Alto
We decided what was good for us
In the middle of a planet's crumbled
We're alive and crawling on the wall
This will be covered after all
We died in circles
We born in the middle of nowhere
We were alone
In the middle of the circumstances
You were not good for us
We born in a circle
We grew up thinking was our time
