De Toegift - Nollestrand (Digital Single)
New band De Toegift combines the worlds of Dutch poetry and contemporary indie music into what they prefer to make the most: Dutch spoken indie with influences from jazz. De Toegift's first EP, 'En ik kon alles zien', will be released on the 1st of April 2022.
The second single of this upcoming EP is called ‘Nollestrand’. It's the first song that singer Maxim wrote in his own language. It gives shape to a vivid and intimate childhood memory in which he moved to Zeeland as a three-year-old boy with his parents and older brother. ‘Nollestrand’ pays tribute to that vast plain, the mighty sea and the monumental wind organ that together form the symbol of his origin. If you listen carefully, you can imagine yourself being back in time with him: childlike observations and amazement are captured in a time capsule.
The music tries to capture the rhythm of the sea and the warmth of a late summer day by the sea in its own way. De Toegift is joined by Franklin Schieman (saxophone) and Hester Julia Voddé (violin) who help make 'Nollestrand' sound like a cinematic whole.
