ValutanThe Malmö duo Valutan has recently released their debut album “Blame the Voters” (Pitch9). The album, which could be described as indie-electronica, is about sex, death and taxes, according to the band.

They paint an interesting atmospheric sound landscape, but at the same time a little freightening and cynical. I find myself walking through the hollow, empty streets of a big city lined with glassed “corporate” buildings and futuristic constructions, with threating subtexts that emanates from these buildings. Told with distanced, neutral vocals and nice melodies.

They have released the entire album free for download on Pitch9’s home page.

Taste a few songs:

Bright Lights, Big City
What’s Your PPP
