High school friends Marnix Dorrestein and Willem Wits make upbeat, dynamic and energetic indie pop – which might make you think of such indie heroes as Vampire Weekend, Phoenix or Grizzly Bear. The project in their own words: „Strong and vulnerable, compassionate and idiosyncratic, reliable and adventurous. All at once.“ Listening more closely, however, it becomes clear how the two have woven their personal demons into the songs. Marnix explains, „We don’t feel too cool to be a ‚feel good band,‘ but we actually sing about very personal things. If the end result is that we make people happy and can make them dance, then as far as we’re concerned, it’s mission accomplished.“ Their new album is set for release this summer!
