Jan and Romke Kleefstra are brothers, currently based in The Netherlands who have previously collaborated with Machinefabriek and Peter Broderick amongst many others. Joined by British artist Gareth Davis, they make some ominous dynamic soundscapes using guitar, clarinet and spoken word.

In February 2009, Jan and Romke Kleefstra invited clarinetist extraordinaire Gareth Davis to join them in an small and intimate country-side studio located at the very heart of Friesland. Romke Kleefstra had indeed been very keen to experiment with Davis’ use of bass and contrabass clarinets, and see how their timbres could potentially compliment his guitars. The recording sessions, which were spread across a couple of days, led to hours of material recorded, and the production of two records – the sublime ‘Sieleslyk’ EP released earlier this year on Rural Colours and the present full-length album ‘Tongerswel’.

The spoken words of Jan Kleefstra are in Frisian, a minority language spoken in the north of The Netherlands.
