After meeting each other in their earlier band De Hardheid, Menno Vermeulen (vocals / sax / synth), Pim Koppen (vocals / bass) and Niels Docter (drums) founded Holbeck in 2017. The trio starts experimenting and releases their first music video and single “Bow and Obey” at the end of 2017. A year later the music video for their single “Fire” follows.
After the first two singles which alternately show the psychedelic and explosive side of Holbeck, it’s time for a first real EP. Holbeck launches “Medusa” on 5 October 2019. The EP contains title track “Medusa”, an intense auditory acid trip and the energetic and punk-tending song “Perfect Girl”. All in all a good impression of what you can expect on stage.
In live shows the tight rhythm section also provides a good foundation for the misanthropic lyrics and violent saxophone parts of frontman Menno. Despite the minimal line-up, Holbeck presents overwhelming shows that are both psychedelic and danceable.
