Biography

Lend me your underbelly is the solo project of Christian Berends, who is based in the Netherlands. The music of Lend me your underbelly cannot easily be put under the specifics of a certain genre, but is characterised by a sentiment of melancholy and urgency, which tries to unroot daily reality, to place it in a more real perspective: the perceived reality and emotions of the listener itself. Lend me your underbelly is a vehicel from which the listener can borrow, use, or abuse the music for its own private thoughts. For this, a variety of instruments are used: guitars, field recordings, vocals, electronic drums, keyboards, harmoniums, bass guitars, mandolins, or whatever is needed. Loud expressive, or approaching silence.

After putting out a few instrumental low profile web releases, soon the debut album “Giant tadpoles among us” will be released. As a first encounter, in August the 7 inch single “Tiendoornig stekelbaarsje” will be released, on which also a collaboration with Bosbeetle can be heard on the song “Stormvloedkering”. In parallel, the music of Lend me your underbelly will also be brought to another dimension in live performances. Through effective use of cables, live impulses, loopers, and surprise factors, the music will be brought in a direct manner on stage, in which improvisations are not avoided. Keep an eye on updates to catch Lend me your underbelly live…

    Never trust a man who dislikes cats. Interesting music. Where does one find a furry panda to push off a slide?

    Heard this on "Ulver" radio--not sure why, but wow, what a great description! (I would never buy a cat either!) Also, I thought the expression was "step on a duck...". This is so weird, I'm going to have to check it out...
