Hailing from the backwater Frisian municipality of Dokkum, Jaap van der Velde, Erik Woudwijk and Elias Elgersma shrewdly courted spirituality under their own nonconformist whims on debut LP Youth Hunt.
The Dutch trio’s upcoming second album The Big Exercise – out February 7th on Sub Pop – brings them to more grounded, tangible pastures.
The Big Exercise finds the band keenly second-guessing their core chemistry as a live unit, imbuing their angular post-punk workouts with baroque elements such as piano, acoustic guitar, percussion, and even clarinet. “ Opening track ‘What’s In Store’ was in part inspired by Van der Velde’s unprompted deep dive into the world of National Anthems, making his own attempt to conjure a similarly timeless melody. The song seamlessly bleeds into the chivalrous prance of ‘Children’s Day’ and the fragmented ‘Pawing’, righteously encouraging Erik Woudwijk’s nimble, cerebral drumming to become the band’s driving force. With aplomb, The Homesick made a record impregnated with impressions which – when superimposed – still fit neatly under the pop umbrella.
