His background as a sound-sculpturedesigner comes across in strong melodies which are kept in check by Floris de Jonge, a former deathmetal drummer, who switched from fast, furious and heavy pounding to sensitive and atmospheric drumming and a harmonious second voice. Bass guitarist Ruben Trimbach also finds musical inspiration as part of a DJ-collective. Co-founder of the band, Paul van Gogh, provides adventurous guitarharmonies with Sebastiaan. On their album they get support, among others, from Bartjan Baartmans on lapsteelguitar, who also mixed the album.
Where the album is intimate, the live gigs are something else. Songs come alive in this setting in a whole new way. Let yourself get carried away at one of the gigs of the oncoming tour. Already one of the big surprises of 2008.
