There will never be enough of passionate, commited indie bands putting their hearts in music and working hard for the simple wish to make a living as musicians. So welcome TOWN OF SAINTS with us and get your daily portion of grounded and uncomplicated folk rock.
The fact that TOWN OF SAINTS have nordic origions points to a good chance of getting quality. The Finnish / Dutch trio consits of Harmen Ridderbos (vocals and guitar), Heta Salkolahti (violin and vocals) and Sietse Ros (drums) and has brought out its first LP Something to Fight With in Oktober 2013. Before that and two self-produced EPs, Ridderbos and Salkolahti were street-musicians. As we said – working hard for the money.
After touring Europe and playing shows at 2013 Eurosonic/Noorderslag, where they were signed by Snowstar Records. We think they and their song Stand up deserve it to be today’s Sound of the Day. A sincere yet hopeful and dynamic track that shows the band’s talent to combine folk elements like Salkolahti’s violine with rocking drums and guitars.
‘You can always stand up with a heavy heart and a heavy mind.‘ Watch the video for Stand up below.
