If PJ Harvey, Kurt Cobain, and Sonic Youth had a love baby, it might have been named Black Monsoon. Dutch alt-rockers Black Monsoon blend their personal picks from highlights of nineties grunge and alternative rock into their own style of going against the grain. Driven by catchy guitar riffs and the pounding drums of Marjolijn Dokter, the melancholic vocals of frontwoman Jacky Kwast and frontman Teun Guichelaar embrace each other to find comfort. On stage, the trio furiously express their personal blood, sweat and tears by alienating melodies, unusual guitar tunings and drill-machine solos. In 2018, the band debuted with a selftitled EP, recorded at Sputnikstudio in Antwerp (BE). Along with their acclaimed DIY attitude, this soon put Black Monsoon in the spotlights of underground venues across the country and abroad. The band opened for Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth), Indian Askin, Whispering Sons and David Nance Group. In 2019, Black Monsoon was selected for Popronde, the acclaimed festival for up-and-coming talented bands in The Netherlands, picked as talent by Dutch music magazine Never Mind the Hype, and did a DIY tour in the UK. Well-received singles ‘Jabberwocky’, ‘ Losing’, and 'Pantomime' anticipated the release of their first long player Pantomime on 27 November 2020 accompanied by their unique concept of a live-video release tour, scratching open painful wounds from oppressive feelings of insecurity and self-reflection.
