„Postpunk chansons somewhere between Charlotte Gainsbourg and Malaria”
Valerie Renay is a Berlin-based actress, performer, live musician, painter and electronic pop chanteuse and one half of Noblesse Oblige. Following the pause of her above mentioned duo project after four albums, Renay goes solo and has already toured her live performances of rock, punk and ambient in Europe and South Africa.
The French-Caribbean singer, keeps transgressing genre boundaries and has built, throughout her career, a fascinating link between music, performance art and fashion. Her work embodies a collection of empowering and ethereal songs oozing with dreamy, dark electronic scents with a visceral twist. An opus full of contrasts, taking the listener through the whole spectrum of human emotions.
„Obvious reference markers are both throbbing gristle and suicide though scratch a little deeper and from out of the minimalist murmurs appears a Grace Jones/Siouxsie hybrid channeling heavily on XMal Deutchsland” Mark Barton about Valerie Renay in The Sunday Experience.
