Avant la Lettre

A young band from Amsterdam, Avant la LettreLaurens Radstake (vocals, guitar, keys, bass, programming), Erwin Stoepman (keys, guitar), Lyangelo Vasquez (bass, keys), Titus Zeldenrust (drums), and Martin Beusker (guitar) – has started to gain notice this year, with the release of a first album, Belief, and several performances for Dutch radio and television. The name may be French but the band thus far performs entirely in English (though the text on their website is in Dutch; they also have a Facebook page in English as well as channels on Youtube and Vimeo); it wouldn’t be surprising to see them touring abroad in the near future.

On the band’s Soundcloud page there are three numbers not on Youtube.

“Masquerade.”

“Ages of Man.”

And “Isolator.”
