The first single leading up to 18.104.22.168. was ‘The Day That Richard Krajicek Wimbledon Won’ and with that De Jong immediately proved himself to be an extremely skilled songwriter. His recognizable style, the lo-fi instruments and the lyrics that are sometimes difficult to follow, just like a stream of thoughts, are filled with memories, make this a classic Spinvis again.
“There were rondos and beer. There was a lot of sun on average. The day Richard Krajicek won Wimbledon.”
As a prelude to the new record, the song left both old-timers and new fans on the edge of their seats. Because after Train, Vuur, Dageraad the expectations are again unprecedented high, but as someone who can surpass them, that is Spinvis.
