After a stormy year in which Jagd and Yasmine raged through the Netherlands with their sharp garage pop, indie and new wave on Speed sound during the Popronde, they cross paths in 2018 to take each other on. A battle not to be missed!
The Dutch band from Amsterdam, is sharp indie, organized punk or new wave on speed. In any case, it is sharp and danceable and consists of heavy, but playful base lines, intense and energetic guitars, driving drums, raw vocals and a synthesizer here and there. The jury of Amsterdamse Popprijs thinks Jagd’s music is “An extraordinary pile of noise with international potential”.
Jagd is an intense live act, described by the media as tight, inescapable, passionate, entertaining and surprising. August 31st this year, Jagd released the new single ‘Do Something’ with a music video by stop-motion animator Elmer Kaan, who also made videos for artists such as The Prodigy. During Popronde 2017, Jagd played over thirty shows and was adopted as talent by 3voor12 and Never Mind the Hype. After taking over Groningen during Noorderslag, the rest of the Netherlands will follow in 2018.
Yasmine makes garage pop. It rattles, hurts your ears and gets stuck in your head for months. The band was formed in 2016 by frontman Kevin van Moorsel, joined by Dan Huijser on the drums and Eszl de Vois on the bass and pedal dance. Their second single ‘Tiny Bubbles’ of debut EP ‘Honey’ just released and begin 2018 they will release more new music. The band is just one year old and already played in Paradiso, Vera, and Patronaat. Expect psychedelic, poppy songs with a raw edge. Think chocolate fingers, burn marks and furry little rabbits.
