“Raw, eerie and dangerous” Blues Magazine really couldn’t have picked better words to describe the music of Dutch five piece Black Operator.
Formed at the tail end of 2016 and influenced by artists like The Black Angels, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and good old Johnny Cash it wasn’t long before the music scene took notice of Black Operators pounding and catchy blues rock.
Their popularity gained steam after their first two singles ‘Mr. Preacherman’ and the thrilling murder ballad ‘Marita’ both made their way to the top of the Dutch Indie Chart. This resulted in the band playing at numerous festivals and venues all over the country.
Early 2018 Black Operator was selected out of a mere 1200 contenders to take part in the critically acclaimed Dutch travelling festival Popronde 2018.
Black Operator are currently recording their debut album which is set for a spring 2019 release.
