Discovery: Blaudzun

Blaudzun is a Dutch purveyor of epic indie rock.

By Graeme Smith

New track islands_ combines mellow, piano-accompanied verses with big, riff-filled choruses. It builds to a stadium-filling finish of piano, strings and percussion that will have your fists in the air and your feet stomping.

Blaudzun, real name Johannes Sigmond, has reached gold status in The Netherlands and achieved international success in 2012 with a release in the United States. Check out islands_ below.
