2nd Album: The Golden Lining
Things have been expanding and moving while working on the 2nd album the past years. More musicians have joined in for the recordings, Laurens Radstake on guitar and Nana Adjoa on bass.
The second album is about how to deal with hard times. Illustrations were made for each of the 11 songs on the album. Each song represents a part of how to cope with these challenging times in terms of the different crises facing human existence. But at the same time the album has a lively and positive side; the lust for life, connecting to one another, and the fun and fury amidst the crisis.The new album has finally been released in june 2020.
