About the acts
This indie rock trio’s incendiary live shows thrust them into the limelight grabbing the attention of audiences worldwide with the release of their debut album ‘Vulture/ Provider’. Bombay’s latest LP ‘Show Your Teeth’ is set to be even bigger and better than before, bringing post punk and 90’s grunge together with poppy hooks. This Amsterdam based bands live show will be the perfect showcase for their experimental, genre spanning sounds.
Fresh from conquering Eurosonic, Dutch psych rockers PAUW have recently released their debut album ‘Macrocosm Microcosm’ through Caroline International. PAUW meld influences including Earth & Fire, Pink Floyd, Tame Impala and Temples to soporific effect. Drowned In Sound called the album “Macrocosm Microcosm is an accomplished and ambitious record that works on every level” joining the likes of MOJO, Clash and Shindig praising their innate songwriting ability on their new LP. PAUW are undoubtedly psych pop’s new ambassadors.
Rats on Rafts
Rotterdam based foursome Rats on Rafts’ fiery post-punk scourge has been compared to celebrated Northern English counterparts and erstwhile bands from Rotterdam’s rich fringe music scene. With their long-awaited and self-produced, recorded and mastered sophomore LP due for release this year, the Rats have finally captured a sound to truly call their own. Having released their debut LP The Moon Is Big to nation-wide critical acclaim, the Rats’ live shows rapidly gained notoriety within and beyond the Dutch borders from the likes of Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand), Will Sergeant (Echo & The Bunnymen) and punk figurehead John Robb (Louder Than War, The Membranes).
This Dutch duo's incredibly catchy arrangements seem perfused by a rarefied pop magic that only a chosen few have truly mastered. Two obscenely talented youngsters named Harm Coolen and Merijn Scholte Albers are the brains and muscle of the operation, dreaming up slow-burning, emotive and highly dynamic electronic music with a taste for danceable drama and epic melodies. Brimming with powerful synth hooks, rousing rhythmic patterns and expertly juxtaposed intensities, Weval’s music lends itself rather well to a live setting with Harm and Merijn successfully adapting their intimate sound cosmos to active dance floors, bringing a heady vibe and lots of flexing bass to clubs and festivals all over Europe.Their sonic expedition moves deeper into uncharted territory in 2016 with the self-titled debut-full length „Weval“ - not a mere collection of interchangeable tracks, but an organically flowing record with emotional heft and a narrative thread.
