The London-based trio that make up Vondelpark are Lewis Rainsbury, Alex Bailey, and Matt Law. They caused quite a stir from online bloggers with their release Sauna ep without even spending much on advertising via social media.
Vondelpark are just one of those bands that doesn't lose itself in endless posts and comments - they rather communicate with audio-visual output.
Compared to all the newcomers and hotshots in Ferropolis, Vondelpark are more of an oasis of tranquility with fair and floating pop music.
Vondelpark songs have warm sound that at first you enjoy and then slowly as the songs build up into a finale that can be quite confusing.
Surrey-based solo act Vondelpark's "Camels", fans are will also enjoy listening to their latest EP, the follow up to last year's Sauna EP, which is curiously called nyc stuff and nyc bags. We need to give our thanks to Pitchfork for giving us the advance notice of this release. Please share the stream of Vondelpark's new record before its official release on July 18 via R&S.
