EP RELEASE 6 maart 2020!!!!
** 1 female, 3 males = over-sized emotions … making full-candy coloured sounds in a gray colourless world … Leaving traces and dreams of love, death and tenderness in a harsh and violent Lynchian reality … **
The Ghent-based jagged pop-rock quartet Himshe likes to dress up there music in an atmospheric world where David Lynch meets Father Theresa. ‘Constrict’ is their first single, a production under the wings of Koen Gisen.
Selien Hoessen, writer, musician and composer likes music that embraces duality. Both strong weakness and weak strength shimmer through her voice. She tells her tender stories in a gutsy way. But her deepest story is always a story of connection in this highly polarized world. She melts left and right, major and minor, hard and soft, fast and slow, man and woman. She releases a Koen Gisen production with Naomi ‘Reena Riot’ starring as backing vocalist.
