VLNA are an anonymous pair of artists who began recording together back in 2008. The only previous glimpse of VLNA was in Volume One of our Earthtones series and now, we have the privilege of making their debut album Turquoise Threads available to the world after it lay dormant for so long. Hailing from two separate countries, they established a method of working through online communication channels and the sharing and adapting of recordings via file transfer sites. The artists behind this project had never recorded in the same room during the construction of this record and hadn't even met until years later.

The concept behind this work is sound-exchange and a record that could be made by any two people who had never met before in person, but communicating through different channels and producing sound as pieces of information sent back and forth. It sounds like a stream, a flux of sounds going from one end to another.

The five tracks that make this record equate to a thick veil of atmospheric noir as the threads of adapted violin, guitar and voice intertwine. There is an aching darkness that sweeps this all too brief body of work that will appeal to fans of Svarte Greiner, Kreng and Richard Skelton.
