Knarsetand: Fantasy

Knarsetand are back with a new EP. Fantasy is an eclectic mix of styles, a party record with a message. Band leader Martijn Holtslag has some harsh words about money grabbing bankers and power hungry politicians in Burn Babylon Down. The two parts of Fantasy (upbeat and chill out) shows their prowess to find ways to arrange a song in radical different ways. They saved the best for last. The EP's closer Dead Men tell no Tales is a stomping musical circus act about revenge.

The Dutch dectet burst upon the scene last year with their debut album My Escape and were the highlight of the summer festival circuit. With this fresh batch of songs they can insert fresh blood into their set.
