Olga Wallis - voice
Frans de Waard - sounds & keyboards
Freek Kinkelaar - voice & instruments
In the fickle world of pop music Beequeen forms an extraordinary beacon.
Their fragile sound dances the fine threat that links experiment and pop music. The result is surreal dream-pop. It is therefore no surprise that Beequeen has been
described a band straight out of David Lynch's TV series Twin Peaks.
Frans de Waard (laptop) and Freek Kinkelaar (guitar and vocals) have been making music together since 1988 as Beequeen. In 2007, singer Olga Wallis was added to
the lineup. Her warm and intimate voice is the perfect icing on the cake for Beequeen.
Over the years Beequeen have released over 20 albums in Europe and America.
"Port Out Starboard Home", their latest CD, was released in America by Important Records.
In 2012 and 2013 spend Beequeen spend their time working on 'Around Midnight' with producer Peter van Vliet (Mekanik Kommando, The Use Of Ashes) which
is now released by Catsun. It's their most refined work to date, carefully balancing their own brand of dream pop, soundscapes and film noir. A kind of a story runs
through the 'Around Midnight'...:
Persephone was frightened. Her life, as she had envisioned it countless times, had been turned upside down in a millisecond. Why her Oliver? Persephone's friends
all tell her: sometimes there is no turning back. Sometimes memories are all that remain. But Persephone is not the person to sit back and wait. Perhaps there is more
to life; what if it is possible to have memories of things that have not yet happened? Like sleeping backwards. Tonight she isn't sleepy at all, she knows this is her only
chance. Oliver would surely approve. After all, he knew about the two moons in the sky and had told her about it.
Beequeen has performed in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Iceland, Poland and has toured America in 2011 and Russia in 2013. Beequeen has also performed
several times for Dutch national radio....... więcej
