Biography

Amsterdam, the Netherlands (1999 – 2010)

Coparck (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) has been around since 1999, unleashing their mix of , eclectic . ‘A jazzed-up post-rocking city view’ layered with samples and old synthesizer sounds. With influences ranging from Beck, Blur and The Beatles to Ben Folds Five, Bacharach and Bach. As one critic put it, “Coparck’s songs are extremely accessible, yet oddly angular, instantly hummable, yet challenging.”

After two albums, recording, producing and mixing all their music by themselves, the band decided to improve on their ‘Do-It-Yourself’ mentality and take it to a next level. This 3rd album (appropriately called The 3rd Album) is a co-operation with producer Reyn. His recording studio, filled with old analogue synths, pianos and rare musical apparatuses, was an apt place for the quartet to put their creativity to the test. Twelve haunting songs have found their way into this work of fiction. The first single A good year for the robots, the ironic God Dress America and the uplifting You Will Fall are just a few of the highlights on the album. The magazine-like booklet coming with the album is a compilation of 12 photographs by talented Dutch artists and photographers and 12 little stories accompanying the 12 songs. You’ll also find all the lyrics in the back of the booklet. This whole Coparck magazine has been compiled and written by Girod, feeding the listener with images and words.

    Hup Holland Hup!!! ist what Dutch fans shout when the Netherlands play soccer, so if the Dutch get it wrong, how can you blame foreigners who get it wrong. BTW, I have a similar problem, I am English and everybody thinks the Union Jack is the English flag ... who carez, anyway, we are Europe now ... The Netherlands, Holland, Brabant, Normandie, Kent and Niedersachsen are all European provinces now ... ;-)
