Zoom calls are in and in Corona times one of the technical possibilities, so that you at least know what the other person looks like: Pablo van de Poel and his brother Luka, along with fellow Corona member Robin Piso, lounge on a sofa in their studio in Utrecht, Holland, looking a little pale, but the three, between their mid-20s and early 30s, rarely give their answers without a smug grin flitting across their faces. "We take the bizarre Corona circumstances as they are," they say in unison. "As long as we have each other and make music day after day, the virus can lick us anywhere else ..."
The Dutch trio DeWolff is known for psychedelic and blues rock with a lot of retro charm, often reminiscent of Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin. Hammond sound and vintage equipment were a must for recordings and live shows. With the "Tascam Tapes" the band now reduces itself to an old four-track recorder, a battery-powered synthesizer, guitar, a vocal microphone and drum samples - and presents itself in this way from its soulful disco side.
eclipsed: How did you come up with the idea to record this way?
Where's this DeWolff thing going? The three Dutch Bengels are just between 20 and 24 years old and are now presenting their sixth studio work (including the 2008 4-song EP). From the beginning, the trio had it thick as a fist behind their ears. So cool, so relaxed, as daring as on "Roux-Ga-Roux" her bluesrock almost sounded on her debut. But now DeWolff are adding a scoop, they have just gained experience in life.
