Croptop release party!

Croptop.

Croptop is defined by a highly energetic combination of furious guitar, intense but catchy bass-lines, garage drums and some in-your-face vocals delivered in turn by guitarist Sjoerd, bassist Danny and drummer Maud. The band does not only deliver loud yet memorable songs, but speak up about burn-outs, frustration, body empowerment and whatever other topics they experience and feel to their core.

 

Fix Everything.

Fix Everything is boundless hope despite overwhelming dread. They play contorted post-punk music laced with unruly psychedelia, sludge and hardcore, embracing the forlorn feeling of imminent collapse while staying cruelly optimistic in the face of Everything.

 

On their debut album HELLEND VLAK, the Amsterdam-based trio hurtle through transitions and themes, shuffling confidence and despair along with musical genres in their deck of tracks. Never Mind The Hype notes ‘the band is guided by intuition, resulting in post-punk in its most gritty, trippy form’ and OOR heard an album that’s ‘somewhat occult… fitting the times, … a dark, unsettling and even exhilarating trip’.

 

The members – who have their roots in Dutch underground acts such as Those Foreign Kids, Tijger Salto and Stairs to Nowhere – recorded the album at studio Erik’s House in Amsterdam. The album was produced and mixed by Casper van der Lans, and mastered by Mikey Young. 

 

Docile Bodies

Dutch post-punk outfit Docile Bodies brings a unique approach to the genre, creating canorous and complex melodies while simultaneously drawing attention to the vastness and emptiness of the space they sonically occupy. Their latest release, aptly named 'Sculptures in Motion', could very well serve as a metaphor for their sound — monolithic, yet perpetually building momentum.

 

Drawing comparisons to artists like The Chameleons, The Cure, and Killing Joke, Docile Bodies is not a band that plays their influential cards close to the vest. However, in today's saturated landscape of 'Faith'-era replicas, the four-piece uses their influences as a jumping-off point rather than a crutch, forging a sonic path that sounds familiar yet novel all at the same time.

 

DJ Scottify will be closing the night.

 

Bring Cash and a good attitude.

 

Sexists, Racists, Homophobes stay home.

 

We have a zero tolerance policy of assholery so please behave.
