Rousing alternative-but-danceable rock, by the neighbours
From Nijmegen: alternative, yet danceable, rock with its very own identity! The five-members of De Staat, already world-famous in The Netherlands for a while now, grooved inimitably again on versatile fourth longplayer ‘O’ (out since 14/01 via Caroline Records), the successor to ‘I_CON’ from 2013.
The last single from that previous album, ‘Witch Doctor’, was accompanied by an extremely intriguing video (with frontman Torre Florim in a voodoo-ish leading role) that no less than exploded on the worldwide web. The counter has registered almost 2 million views and the door in the direction of the rest of Europe is certainly standing wide open: De Staat recently announced a European tour as support to Muse in May ’16.
After their conquest of a series of well-filled Dutch concert venues, The Netherlands’ most exciting band is coming to brighten upBrussels late this year, with an exclusive Belgian club concert. Should we now dance or headbang for joy? Let’s do both!
