Sonic Soirée #40
Blackie & the Oohoos (BE)
Naive Set (NL)
Every month we scout musical talents from the Low Countries, looking for those pop and rock bands that make our hearts beat faster, dare to take that extra step and break through boundaries like they mean it. From sturdy rock to melodic jazz, from cool electronic sounds to fragile intimate folksongs: at Sonic Soiree we present the musical diamonds from Flanders and The Netherlands..
Blackie & the Oohoos
The Maieu sisters evoked in their second album a dark, surreal atmosphere filled with tension. Warm yourself to their pure, idiosyncratic, psychedelic dream pop with a hint of polyphonous folk.
This Amsterdam quartet wraps its contagious indie pop with dreamlike melodies and harmonic vocals. Their last album, 'Dragon', was released in November 2015 on the intruiging Subroutine label. If you hear the warm sounds that form these beautiful songs, you wont be surprised that this album was received very well.
