MAMA ROUX From their studio lair on the outskirts of Amsterdam comes Mama Roux, the three-piece band that’s sure to throw a monkey wrench in your conception of contemporary rock music. The band consists of Dutchie Maarten on drums, the inevitable rambling man Patrick on bass and their Croatia-rooted guitar player Lukas. Lovely to meet you; welcome to the Roux. Mama Roux’ sound can’t be easily pigeonholed: their blend is one of garage rock and inimitable funk-era groove, all based on a bone-chilling delta-blues foundation. The band has been under the influence of such acts as Dr. John, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Meters and Led Zeppelin.Inhibited by a pandemic and ensuing lockdowns, the threesome was eagerly bound to play the underground scene, where they’ve gathered a tightly-knit following of like-minded revellers. Recently, ‘Big Fuss’, the first track of their eponymous EP, was released. It’s a rowdy embodiment of Roux’ musical vision: explosive, uncompromising and forcing its listener to start moving.
AUDREY AC Amsterdam-based band Audrey AC mix melodic indierock tunes with dreamy lyrics and a happy touch of weirdness. They founded in the fall of 2019 and inspirations include Radiohead, Sparklehorse, Roxy Music and Phoebe Bridgers.
