There are two bands with the name The Netherlands: 1) the netherlands are a dutch musical group formed in 2008. the band consists of Boyke Kooijmans, Jean-Luc Rouvroye, Patrick Thüss, Rob van Uden and Ted van de Wijdeven. After their 2009 debut ´We are not´ the band significantly changed their musical direction, abandoning pop forms in favour of a more abstract approach and using traditional live instrumentation to create electronic sounding music. ‘Ampul’ sees the netherlands abandoning pop song structures and traditional vocal based melody in favour of quietly drifting, minimally arranged music. The band puts strong emphasis on repetition, fluid guitar-and-keyboard atmospherics, loops and vocal samples. ‘Ampul’ firmly places the netherlands’ music within the krautrock/ambient/indie electronics context. This new departure is indirectly the result of the netherlands’ new approach to live performing: throughout 2010 their live set evolved from a classic ‘band do songs’ performance to a collective improvisation in sound and structure. 2) THE NETHERLANDS PLAY A KIND OF FUTURISTIC BIKER ROCK, FEATURING LURCH HAPPY RIFFS AND A SINGER THAT SLATHERS HIS VOICE IN WEIRD PSYCHO EFFECTS. THEIR SET IS A BURST OF ANTI-INTELLECTUAL GLEE. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
