Romanian ambient
trio, Environments, will release their third album, entitled Fraktal,
on March 16th.

Building on their previous work, the new material
takes their blend of slow rhytms, repetitive drum and piano figures
and beautiful and meditative ambiental parts even further and expand
it with minimal guitar bursts and freely phasing drones.
The album
also includes a collaboration with Belgian artist Mathieu
Vandekerckhove, known for his work with bands like Amenra, Syndrome or
Kingdom and who will also perform at the album launch event on March
16th in Bucharest with his experimental project, Syndrome.
Like
their first two records, Fraktal was also recorded at Next Dog Studio,
a remote studio placed by the river Mostistea, far away from the
overcrowded romanian capital.
The artwork created by Romanian
artist Alexandru Daș was largely inspired by naturally occurring
fractals which have also been the main inspiration for the visual part
of the first song released from the album, "An Unconditional Love For
Bad Weather", available here:

After the release, the
trio will embark on a small european tour alongside post-rock /
post-punk band, Valerinne, and will play in countries like Bulgaria,
Croatia, Germany, Belgium and Slovenia.

“Fraktal” will be
available for digital download as well as on
vinyl.

Tracklist:
"Fraktal"
"An Unconditional Love For
Bad Weather"
"A White, White Day"
"Aomame"
"Blecher (feat.
Mathieu Vandekerckhove)"
