Harm Coolen and Merijn Scholte met in 2010 as students of the Utrecht School of the Arts.
They joined forces to form Weval and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Based in Amsterdam and signed to the German label Kompakt, the electronic duo released their debut album in 2016 to critical acclaim (8/10 according to Pitchfork). One of their tunes, the hypnotic Detian, featured in a TV ad featuring Penelope “What did you expect?” Cruz. Weval have had a great time touring with their second album, The Weight, which came out in March it. On stage they’re capable of ramping up the atmosphere to the point of ecstasy and creating moments of sublime pleasure that are both provocative and dreamlike.
