MV approved proggers get experimental 

Following the acclaimed debut album I / (Time)” release in late 2015  international post-prog band Vly are releasing a remixes and out-takes EP entitled “Tangents & Mutations Vol. 1”.

Described as an “idiosyncratic collection of remixes, collaborations, experiments and out-takes for the brave and curious”, Tangents & Mutations Vol. 1 includes remixes by the band’s members and collaborations with other artists such as Animals With Machinery, BLK_TAG, Janussi etc. plus unreleased material, out-takes and “soundscapes”.

The Tangents & Mutations series is a work-in-progress, an “open lab” where band members, friends and colleagues can use released or unreleased material to explore new shores and uncharted territories adding own performances or manipulating all existing material in an environment free of any constraints.

The results is a wide range of expressions: from minimalist and intimate melodic elements to challenging experiments in remote sonic lands.

“Tangents & Mutations Vol. 1” will be available directly on VLY’s bandcamp page:
on 8th July 2016 in a limited edition Pay-What-You-Want digital download format.


VLY is comprised of a varied team of multi-instrumentalists fusing their talents into an incredibly vibrant new entity, including guitarist/keyboardist/programmer Karl Demata (ex-Crippled Black Phoenix), vocalist Keith Gladysz (Diet Kong, Typical Reptiles), keyboardist/synth programmer Elisa Montaldo (Il Tempio Delle Clessidre), bassist Chris Heilmann (ex-Crippled Black Phoenix, Bernie Torme’, Shark Island), and drummer/keyboardist Mattias Olsson (ex-Änglagård. White Willow, Necromonkey). Once united by the internet and phone lines across the Atlantic with each other, VLY carved a sound which blends elements of progressive rock, classic rock, folk, early-Floydian psychedelia, intimate pop melodies, walls of epic guitars, post-classical, post-rock and electronic music. And it’s the diverse background of the members that lead to the breadth of their sound. Their electrifying debut album, I / (Time), was engineered and produced by members of the outfit and mastered by Bob Katz, presenting an entire hour of crisp, adventurous music.

VLY is currently at work on new material and projects to be unveiled in the very near future.
