“The pendulum like jerk of the music takes hold…it’s quirky, pounding and infectious” – Kerrang Magazine ( 4/5)
“The bluesy, Black Keys hooks give an early indication as to how the five-piece have become one of Holland’s best loved bands” – The Fly Magazine
“They’ve got the songs to back it all up” – Classic Rock Magazine (7/10)
As front man Torre explains: Who knew, that after playing the same London venue three times in one month, we’d be missing you already. The urge came back, it’s itching again. So let’s scratch it good by returning to the UK.
DE STAAT can also reveal the brand new video for single ‘All Is Dull’.
“All Is Dull’ video can be seen here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvMUnUmRY4M
‘All Is Dull’ is featured in Q Magazine’s “5 Songs To Hear This Week” on www.QTheMusic.com
“All Is Dull commandeers The Black Keys’ bluesy stomp, re-deploying it with deadpan charm. Like many a trip to Amsterdam, this is music to lose your inhibitions to.” – Qthemusic.com
The band have also made a video for ‘Down Town’ as featured on the EA FIFA 14 game soundtrack (across all formats). See the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WQuQg0UQSY
Check out the video for previous single ‘Devil’s Blood here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgObLNPlBzY
Delving even just a ‘little’ deeper though reveals DE STAAT as one of the most exciting, undiscovered gems in European music. Front man Torre Florim worked with the likes of Vance Powell (legendary, multi Grammy award winning mixer from Nashville, Jack White’s right hand man) and Ben Newman.
Where previous album ‘Machinery’ was very much a guitar driven record, ‘I_CON’ thrives on a much more synth and sci-fi soundtrack infused beating heart, with African rhythms, happy hardcore, trap-influences and weird sounds also helping create its sound. Pooling influences from world music, 80’s rock/dance cross over like Talking Heads, science fiction sound tracks, House music, the dark story telling of the likes of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds and so much more. ‘I_CON’ is an album to discover, be blown away by and repeatedly get lost in, marking DE STAAT out as one of 2013’s most exciting new discoveries.
