Lend me your underbelly is the one-man-band of Christian Berends from the Netherlands. The music of Lend me your underbelly is written through improvisation and experiment, and is strongly characterised by a sentiment of melancholy and urgency, consisting of elements that are linked to experimental and psychedelic rock, often taking place in atmospheric settings, together with a pinch of noise. Loud expressive, or approaching silence. Guitar, field recordings, vocals, midi triggered samples and instruments, loopers and other tools are used to explore the boundaries between improvisation, studio recordings, and performing on stage. After putting out a few instrumental low profile demos, in October 2013 the debut album "Giant tadpoles among us" was released.

From this album, the 7 inch single "Tiendoornig stekelbaarsje" was taken, on which a collaboration with Bosbeetle could be heard on the song "Stormvloedkering". On 25 April 2015 the second album "Hover" will be released. Hover consists of 5 fairly long tracks that are interconnected through sound, space and lyrical theme. Next to this, two shortfilms that feature music from Lend me your underbelly will come out in 2015: "Home" (2 tracks) and "Omdat ik bij je ben moet je me uitleggen hoe ik moet leven"* (complete soundtrack).

In parallel, the music of Lend me your underbelly is brought to the stage through live performances. Through effective use of cables, loopers, and live impulses, the music is presented in a direct manner, in which improvisations are not avoided. (*translates into: Because I'm with you, you have to explain me how to live.) From 2001 until 2008, Christian played under the name Harfst-Ruus as guitarist in the black metal band Salacious Gods, where he could be heard on the album "Piene", and live on stage during Dutch and European tours. Currently, Christian plays also as a bass guitarist in the melodic rock/metal band Downburst Read more on Last.fm.
