WEFRING

With a sound of opposites, light and darkness, dance and distortion, glitter and doom. All this together with Marie’s unique voice creates the beautifully disturbing sound of WEFRING.

WEFRING is collaborating with visual artist Rommel Valgart. Creating a unique live experience, performing breathtaking and surreal 3d-images that melt together perfectly in harmony with the changing moods of the music. Creating and stadium vibe in a club environment.

In late 2011, songwriters Marie Wefring and Carlos Sepúlveda met and listened to demos Marie had done over the years and laid the foundation of what would later on become WEFRING.

In 2012 Marie and Carlos started to lay down the first tracks to what would become ”SOLITUDE”. Musicians from the extreme fringes of the Gothenburg music scene were invited to the sessions and by putting them in a different context Marie and Carlos created ”the sound of opposites”.

The sound of WEFRING is alternative, with roots in the indie scene as well as influences from punk, doom and ambient.

In 2015 WEFRING completed the work on there debut album ”SOLITUDE”

The album has been produced, recorded and engineered by Carlos Sepúlveda at Belly of the Whale studio and Mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, High on fire, Beastmilk). Album artwork, layout and logo by Rommel Valgart

During the short time the band has existed, they’ve been getting great feedback for their intense Live-shows in both Sweden, Norway and Germany.

The band also appears on the soundtrack for the hailed Swedish documentary film ”Befria dig från mig”. Playing a set during the opening of the movie at the Gothenburg Film Festival 2012.

At 28th of december 2014, WEFRING released a video ”You Inhaled Me”. Frauke, a swedish butoh dancer performed in the video.
