Blaudzun – Heavy Flowers (Dutch Treat)


blaudzun

The soulful vocal beauty of Chris Martin from Coldplay, the folk-symphonic scope of Sufjan Stevens, and the heart-broken tearfulness of Damien Rice or  Ryan O’Neal from Sleeping At Last.

Compelling beauty herein but somehow after all this research and sampling, I want to enjoy some Regina Spektor.

Holland based singer-songwriter Blaudzun releases follow up album Heavy Flowers (V2 Benelux) his most dynamic LP to date, in which his remarkable voice, haunting melodies and dramatic string arrangements coincides with a love for folk and art rock. With this third collection of songs Blaudzun again surpasses his previous work. – Oor Magazine

Critics consider him one of the best kept secrets in European indie pop. But that won’t be for too long. Blaudzun and his seven piece band will hit the stage in both Germany and France this summer and fall.

In September wint hij de 3voor12 Award voor Album van het Jaar. Blaudzun zelf kan niet bij het feest en de uitreiking aanwezig zijn omdat hij op dat moment door Duitsland toert. Na een uitverkochte Belgische clubtour en een concert op CMJ in New York besluit hij 2012 met een op voor hand uitverkochte clubtour in Nederland. Ter ere daarvan wordt op 12 november een speciale Heavy Flowers-toureditie met een livealbum en een fotoboek uitgebracht. Wiki
