All good things are worth waiting for: With that you could describe the story of VARLEY. The three musicians Claire-Ann Varley, Joschka Bender and Matze Heising know each other for quite a long time now, but it took equally long until they finally ended up in that constellation to team up and make music together.
On their first EP which is coming out on April 6th 2018 the band manages to make music that is deeply rooted in a classical singer-songwriter and folk background but at the same time never sounds dated. Claire-Ann‘s vocals are embedded in warm acoustic guitars, mellow synths, earthy drums and ethereal pedal steel guitar sounds. The songs explore the topics of finding and losing each other, of ending things and making new beginnings. On the whole EP there is always that certain dash of nonconformity with the rules of these genres; a darker take on the whole thing, at times more quirky end eerie than you‘d expect, then again taking a turn into the more straight realms of music; but never losing the common thread that is connecting everything: Songs, that also work with just an acoustic guitar and Claire-Ann's unique voice.
