Releasing our brand new ep Shine Down Back live at PIKNIK was freaking awesome, thank you all so very much for your support! It was great sharing the stage with Arthur Adam and Wimbleton. We’ll post pictures of the evening with you as soon as we have them.
Tomorrow, on Saturday the 22nd of April at 21:00, we’ll be releasing our brand new songs for you at PIKNIK, Deventer! We have great guests joining the stage with us: Arthur Adam and Wimbleton.
We just can’t wait, can you?
This Saturday, we played at showcasefestival Booster in Enschede. It was the first time that all five of us shared the stage and we can’t wait to do it again. See you the 22nd of april at 20:00 at PIKNIK Deventer where we will release our brand-new EP Shine down back! Picture: Roy Manuhutu
On the 1st of April, all five of us will be playing at the coolest showcase festival of the east of Holland: Booster festival in Enschede. We’re looking forward to carry out our new sound and present Francesco Taranto to you. Apart from us, you can check out Jan Terlouw Jr., Quibus and Robin Yerah there. Also, eager musicians get the chance to present their demos to professionals from the Dutch popmusic industry if they sign up in time. #Shinedownback
Playing at the Monkeyjam at Vogeleiland Deventer was even cooler than we hoped it to be. Thanks to Roy Manuhutu, you can get an impression of the show. We tried out our brand-new song Take me with you, which will be officially released along with three other songs in april and received heart-warming reactions afterwards. Francesco did a truly great job playing base and guitar. We’re looking forward to the next show!
Today, we’ll be opening the Monkeyjam, a great monthly jamsession in Deventer organized by the Colored Monkeys and Jan Terlouw Junior. It’s a session in which musicians from all over the country gather to make true magic happen on Sunday evenings. Proof of that: We’ve met our drummer Pascal there. This time, it’ll be an edition with electronics in the fundamentals of the session. Laptops will be synced and drummers will play on a clicktrack so everyone walks the same path. Jurriaan won’t be there today, so we asked guitarist/base player Francesco Taranto as a substitute for this time. We’re looking forward and keep you posted!
On Tuesday night, we were invited in the 3FM studios by radio host Anoûl Hendriks. His program “In the shadow of” is a concept where Dutch artists are invited in the studios to talk about their track when the title of it has already been used by a well-known artist. In our case, Lady Gaga had made a song called “You and I” in 2011. We made a song with the same title in 2014 and thanks to Anoûl it got a bit more attention. It was great to meet the young DJ and we had lot’s of fun in the 3fm studio, once again.
Good news: In March, we’ll be releasing our brand-new EP. Alongside, we’ll be releasing our third music video for the title track called Shine Down Back on Me. Director Krischan, of whom we’ve told you about in a previous post, is busy editing the takes as we speak. Even more to look forward to: In april, we’ll be touring through Holland and Germany to promote our new music. (If you know or if you are a venue that would love to invite us, please let us know: email@example.com)
At the moment, Johanneke is in Germany to get inspired by the lovely surroundings of Kleve and write for the new EP. Tomorrow, she and Tonny will be recording the results of the writing sessions. Here’s an impression of the landscape, try not to get jealous 😛
