Groningen, the Netherlands (2004 – present)

VENcE knows how to create a special atmosphere with their music. It tickles and brings you in a state of commotion. It’s pure, intense, has a lot of nerve; it is dynamic and sometimes even aggressive.

The violin and cello drag you along, while the drums, as a sort of counter balance, pounds you in harness. Violin, cello and guitar are the foundation of the band, with the drums as their steady motor. In between floats an accordion, sometimes a piano and supplied with delicate vocals.
The interplay in the band is remarkable. Every instrument serves the greater whole without getting lost in it.

The lyrics, written by the singer, are cryptic. They tease your point of view about all possible things around you; but it’s up to you to interpret their precise meaning and intentions. Associate!

It is hard to describe their musical style. Various media named it swiveling folk/pop/rock with a rim of darkness.
