Northern Valentine is a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania based ambient/drone-rock collective. Their music is largely improvisational and is typically set to original films that the collective has created.

Coaxing sounds from electric and acoustic sources, they weave meditative drones and soundscapes with "barely there" post-rock instrumentation to create a tapestry that Phil McMullen [Terrascope Online] refers to as "minimalist ambiance at its best. Heartfelt, soulful and affecting, like gazing into a scrapbook of memories".

Northern Valentine are:
Robert Brown, Amy Brown, Matthew Primak,
Jeffrey Bumiller, Ben Fleury-Steiner, Marc Carazo
