The trio Jan Dulles, Jaap Kwakman and Robin Küller (who replaced guitarist Jan Schilder) belongs to the inner circle of the popmusic (from Volendam). For some part this is because of the hopefull messages in the songs. Even the most darkish tunes have a silver lining. This optimism is even more hearable on the new record. Jan Dulles said: “If a song makes me cry, it succeeded as a song, but we don’t want that right now.” The idea of De Aard Van Het Beest is a record that cheers people up. An album that can be taken on a roadtrip by car.
