FIGGIE + LE MOTAT
Event on facebook
Dutch-language indie-pop group Figgie is fresh in both words and sound. Their debut Genoeg Houvast sings about hard choices in life in light-hearted daylight. With Vampire Weekend inspired stirring rhythms they form an intimate alliance with a dreamy atmosphere. The lyrics give shape to the dilemmas faced by most people in their twenties: finding a difficult balance between new relationships and independence.
Are you looking for meaning in existence or are you surrendering to the pure euphoria? In some cases the two do not have to exclude each other: every song on Genoeg Houvast feels like a micro-universe in which you can keep on repeat forever.
Support for the night will come from Le Motat. The Rotterdam band describe their sound as ‘Just Dutch pop with a nice edge, including performative texts in between’.
