Employing a doomy, eclectic, and technically masterful brand of punk-addled hard rock with what they describe as "nods to the dirtbag rituals of '70s heavy metal, the grandeur of '80s arena rock, and the crunch of '90s post-hardcore", N.Y.C.
trio Netherlands is the brainchild of Timo Ellis
(guitar, vocals), Ava Farber, (synth bass), and Zach Eichenhorn (drums). Founded in 2008 by Ellis
, a serial collaborator who has worked with Cibo Matto
, John Zorn
, the Melvins
, and Yoko Ono
, just to name a few, the band issued their debut album, Fantasmatic in 2011. The trio's sophomore outing, Silicon Vapor, dropped in 2013, followed by Audubon in 2016, the latter of which was released via Prosthetic Records. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
