Wolf In Loveland
One of the most notable newcomers in Rotterdam’s pop scene is Wolf In Loveland. The formation won the Grote Prijs van Zuid-Holland (an award for aspiring bands) last year and has attract a vibrant group of talented musicians around them after that. Driving force behind the collective is Jan Minnaard, a young singer-songwriter originally from Zeeland, who particularly stands out through his disarming folk songs. His songs are sober and silent but have an immersive effect when played live. The beautiful harmonies accompanied by colorful arrangements remind us of some of their foreign colleagues like Iron & Wine, José González and Angus & Julia Stone.
