From HOLLAND •
Today, Amsterdam's "fuzzy R&B" duo share their soothing new EP About To. Counting six versatile though authentic and recognisable songs it's a distinct new chapter for the duo formed by Saux and Sjaak.
Including singles like Matter To Me, Teenage Love and I Believe I'm Ready, the About To EP signifies a new phase for the two. The EP collects different stories about new chapters, challenges and feelings: from twenty-something doubts to life decisions and maturity. All the artworks for the stretch of releases ahead of the EP were made specifically for City Park by Parisian painter Noémie Cedille.
Musically the EP the most versatile and dynamic the duo have ever sounded. That has all to do with the fact that the duo has started to become a band, playing live and radio shows, forcing more depth, liveliness and energy into their songwriting and production.
