Inge van Calkar
More details

The creative process is a wonderful thing. You write songs, record them, and all of a sudden you see and hear everything differently. That happened to Inge van Calkar, who we still know of its participation in the best Singer-Songwriter of Netherlands. Taste, style and her approach is gradually changed. Then you can continue on the old way, but the lure of a new direction is much more interesting. She just had to follow that inner voice for the upcoming, second album. The acoustic guitar was exchanged for an electric, while the songs received an electronics injection, which gives them much more suspense.

A first single from the album with the working title Animal, is Different World: a sexy indie pop rocker where Florence undoubtedly would put on her best dress for, and otherwise PJ Harvey certainly. Live, Inge is a similar ' appearance ' in white, albeit not necessarily in a dress. There she is wearing a matching white Fender jazzmaster guitar. Cooool! "That song is about you see the world negatively, if you only look down, ' says van Calkar. ' I'm not depressed by the way, Hi! ' Don't think that this remains, as there is much more in the musical barrel, among other things still tracks written with Bas Kennis from the band Bløf.

Forget for a moment her older work, also that with her old band ZaZa: a former 3FM Serious Talent that performd on DWDD. Not that the music was bad. Far from that! But this new step puts her in one hit in modern times. This is not the fragile singer-songwriter with a hat on, as she expresses so beautifully. No, here is an artist who dares stood up with her music on the cutting edge.
