Alex has now written a dozen or so criminally catchy tracks of which the first single ‘Fire Up (here we go)’ was digitally released in May 2018 by indie label TCBYML. The other tracks of the band are also refined and anthem-like and will be eagerly consumed by those who like bands such as New Order, Blur, Arctic Monkeys, Frank Ferdinand, Stone Roses and the like. Need more anchor? Let’s call it ‘Electro-Britrock’.
Alongside Alex you may notice a familiar face on lead guitar. Alex has rudely revived the musical career of Rutger van Mourik. He is the former frontman of Britpop band Flemming who released two highly acclaimed albums on major label Warner in the first decade of the century. The rhythm section of the band is solid as a rock. Drummer Bart Klomp and bass player Auke Haaksma are a class act. They met during their studies at the conservatory in Alkmaar, therefore know each other thoroughly and are able to musically relate on a very high level.
And the band name is ironic of course. We are extremely charming indeed.
