Some nice press

We are very happy 3FM, Holland’s leading rock radio station posted this on their website (Dutch). We were once the first band to be picked for their succesful Serious Talent platform, 8 years ago. Also a piece appeared in Haarlems Dagblad today (Dutch). A piece will also appear in the September edition of Music Maker magazine.
