Formed in 2018, drummer Marco de Haan and keyboardist/producer Iwan Blokzijl (both former electro rock band Soulstar) took their songwriting skills to a different level. ‘It became clear after just a few demos we had something going on’, says Marco, now frontman and lead singer. ‘Less raw than Soulstar, catchier and a little more ‘poppy’ with the warm organic sounds and synths of the 80’s I grew up with’, says Iwan with a cheeky smile.
Their first single ‘Storm will come’ debuts a series of singles for 2019 and an EP planned spring/begin summer.
‘We really dig what we’re doing and hope the music and stories will make a connection to the people’, remarks Iwan. ‘Absolutely!’, agrees Marco. ‘If we’re old we can definitely look back and say, this is the best we could have done.’
