You can smell every scent I spent all over A blady chest and the marks I left all over I am worn out tired of existence Not afraid but then it's too late for me Every footstep that I take seems to drive me back I'm not worried about who’s gonna take me last You can smell every scent I spent all over A blady chest and the marks I left all over Every footstep that I take seems to drive me back I'm not worried about who’s gonna take me last You can smell every scent I spent A blady chest and the marks I left

When she says no there’s a gasp on my throat Fighting for air while breathing in When she says no there's a stop in my world My soul won’t hang on to it I'll support you Bring you closer Still, I will wait for this Right behind you away from your sight I'll be there but you just won't see When she says no despairs makes a hole Flames flow from my chest When she says no there's a crack in my bones I can't stand it I'll support you Bring you closer Still, I will wait for this Right behind you away from your sight I'll be there but you just won't see

Breathing so heavily hold Feelings you have no control Won’t you step down into the sand Water takes all at the end I will let you fall So I can catch you Hold on to your horses if you dare My soul is vaporized then becomes air It’s time To hide Away The ghosts We both Conveyed Then we sail through the oceans of time When I used to hold your hand in mine Sailing I will let you fall So I can catch you

about

Valv dá a receita de como se salvar de uma extinção em massa.

O Valv é uma das poucas bandas brasileiras independentes ativas que contam com mais de vinte anos de existência numa bela e crescente escala evolutiva.

Além de sobreviverem e superarem quaisquer riscos de extinção, sucederam tudo e todos e emergem neste miolo de 2020 mais vigorosos do que nunca, com Silurian, um EP com três sons novíssimos. Definitivamente o melhor e mais poderoso registro que, o agora quinteto, já fez até então.

Numa escala de tempo sonoro, surge o quarto registro gravado, mixado e masterizado localmente em Belo Horizonte, MG, no estúdio Frango no Bafo.

Trabalho de casa, feito a mão por praticamente todos da banda, muito bem pensado e cuidado nos mínimos detalhes.

Dá para sentir, do início ao fim, que o coração da banda foi colocado na ponta dos dedos e nos vocais e letras, mais simples, ainda melhores e mais diretas.

Se a paciência aprimora a existência, o tempo tudo transforma. "Silurian" marca os primeiros sons conhecidos, já totalmente adaptados às novas condições dos sons que acabaram de nascer.

Vida longa ao Valv.
(texto por Glauco Ferreira, amigo, músico, e fez parte de bandas da cena belorizontina, como Constantina, Automatic High Speed e Rallye)


Valv shows how to save themselves from extinction.

Valv is one of the few active independent Brazilian bands that have more than twenty years of existence on a beautiful and growing evolutionary scale.

In addition to enduring and overcoming any risk of extinction, they have succeeded and emerged in 2020 more vigorous than ever, with "Silurian", an EP with three brand new sounds. Definitely the best and most powerful record that, the now quintet, has done so far.

On a sound time scale, the fourth release was mixed and mastered locally in Belo Horizonte, MG, at Frango no Bafo Studio. Homemade and handmade by everyone in the band, very well thought out and careful in the smallest details.

You can feel, from start to finish, that the heart of the band was placed at their fingertips and on the vocals and lyrics, simpler, even better and more direct.

If patience enhances existence, time transforms everything. "Silurian" marks the first known sounds, already aligned to the tones just born.

Long live Valv.

(by Glauco Ferreira, a friend, musician, and former member of local bands, such as Constantina, Automatic High Speed, Ana and Rallye)
