Juliette van Balen and Bart van der Elst have the most playful and dreamy vocal pairing. This latest release, Upside Down, features the couple’s near-perfect synchronization and melodic sensibilities. The track itself signals us to look forward to an unknown future. I love the hopefulness and passive voice that flow over in the tune. This track is so very warm, from the lead riff to the quirky electronics and slappy kit style.

The couple came together in the spring of 2020 while the rest of the world shut down due to coronavirus. A brilliant choice musically as the two seasoned musicians have written a lush lo-fi melody that is both moody and infectious.
