Biography

There are two bands with the name The Singles:

1)An 80s rock band from Belgium: 60s styled pop music with drummer Ben Crabbé.
They manage to get into the finals of Humo’s Rock Rally and their number one hit is a simple summer song.


2.) In an alt-rock field often clouded by sardonic humor and/or melancholic detachment, the Singles offer bright rays and blue skies illuminating carefully cultivated, deeply rooted melodies.

Featuring the guitar of Vincent Frederick, the bass of Jenny Pirch and the male-female harmony/countrapuntal vocals of each, the Singles exhibit a prismatic spectrum of pop, rock, country, girl group sounds and modern alternative. Like the geologic forces of nature that coalesce to form the brightest minerals, the group’s multitude of influences bear traces of theEverly Brothers (a cover of “When Will I Be Loved” fits comfortably alongside originals), Bobbie Gentry, the British Invasion, Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris and Buddy Holly. Call ’em a smoother variation of Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood or a hipper Sonny and Cher, but the sound is still their own.

Like the latter two duos, the Singles brought experience to the table when they formed in early 2010. Frederick’s use of the Singles’ moniker dated all the way back to 1999, when he formed a Detroit power pop quartet that went on to release two acclaimed albums, 2003’s Better Than Before (on the respected Rainbow Quartz label) and 2007’s Start Again (on their own Sound Artifacts Music imprint).
