Saelors

Here in Amsterdam there’s a two-piece band called Saelors which, as it performs in English, shares its preoccupations with its very name – the sea and its world. As one might expect, Alexandra Duvekot and Thijs Havens’ music is suffused by the gloomy light of some quarters of maritime cities after nightfall, and if there were still a “dernier cercle” in this city it’s more than likely that this music would be found there. But these days, though, it could pop up anywhere and at any time.
