Dutch Producer, songwriter and drummer VAN ELST is often compared to the vibes of Joy Division and Crystal Castles, with the unsettled style of conspicuously beautiful eulogies in story.
Said VE: “Listening to songs that relate to the situation I’m in helps me to process my feelings. With ‘Daydreamer’ (featuring Cosette Gobat) I hope to provide a feeling of hope and a similar healing experience for the listener”.
Reflecting on a moving year in which he started his project’s journey, Van Elst wrote this drizzling and daunting heaviness. Based on vocal melodies inspired by ideas that came to him in a daydream he had while gazing out of the window – existential visualizations of the past the present and the future.
An angry cry of sound and visceral desires, can’t describe the frustrations and challenges in front.
Emotional encapsulations, crumble in the halls of sacrifice and the unknown.
Will it last?
