Can’t you find songs from our Nightporter and Straight Stories album anymore on Spotify, Apple Music or elsewhere?

That’s because our old aggregator unfortunately went bankrupt this week. Their supplier, Ampsuite therefore shut down all their songs. For we were their client, our songs were suddenly shut down temporarily too, without a warning from our aggregator in advance. Right now we’re restoring our albums in the platforms again. This will take a few days, or a week, or a little bit more. Today we spent the afternoon to upload our Straight Stories album to our other aggregator again, but they have to send it to the platforms and this will take a while. Nightporter will follow on Monday. Hopefully it will go fast and hopefully we will get our thousands of streams, our dozens of playlist spots and our five years of history back!
Meanwhile our albums are still on Bandcamp.

We wish you a beautiful summer

Last weekend we played live at the Knapsack Festival in a collab with Gluren bij de Buren and guitarplayer Ximo Sirera in a boat on the channels of Delft. Watch the pictures on our insta account. In August we will play live on the Gouda Leeft festival and in October we’ll have our new album release. We will celebrate that with a concert in The Hague. During the summer we work on the last songs of the album. In the meantime we wish you a beautiful summer!

Concerts, indoor and outdoor

It was great (but hot) to give a livestream concert for you again last Saturday on Composers Day (plus Record Store Day). Watch the pictures on our insta page. This Summer we will play live again (and that’s great!) in July on the Knapsack Festival in a collab with Gluren bij de Buren and we’ll also play at Gouda Leeft in August. In the mean time we work on our new album, due to be released in the first half of October.

Recording a string trio, concerts and more

We did a lot of recording and mixing for our new album last month. One of the things that we recorded was a string trio, for a ballad that will be released on the album. Watch the pictures and/or a one minute live recording here. And there is more. First of all, we’re looking forward to our next livestream concert, on the Dutch Composers Day (in Dutch: Dag van de Componist), on the 18th of June. On top of that it’s just confirmed that we’ll also play live on the Knapsack Festival in collaboration with Gluren bij de Buren in July in Delft. Our brand new album is due to be released in September this year. Speaking of which…. last Sunday was the release party of the beautiful ‘Cancelled’ book, a book with pictures of and interviews with Dutch artists like Francis van Broekhuizen, Trijntje Oosterhuis, Michael Varekamp, Simone Kleinsma, Karin Bloemen and many more. And us.

Something else. Petra, our singer, will give vocal coaching sessions during the Summer Music Academy in the beautiful mountains of Transsylvania, near the famous castle of count Dracula. If you’re interested, visit the website of the Summer Music Academy or go to their Facebook page.

Recordings, concerts and a book

Chabliz gave two concerts last month, one of them on the Gluren-bij-de-Buren festival. You can see the pictures here. We are also working on the last recordings and mixes for our new album, some of them together with guest-musicians. A few of the pictures are here. And there is more. Finally the book ‘Cancelled,‘ with pictures of Dutch artists during corona, is available in the bookshops now! It’s a beautiful book with photographs of several famous Dutch singers, musicians and dancers. Chabliz is one of the photographed and interviewed artists in this book. The release of the new Chabliz album is expected this summer and Chabliz will be giving more concerts in the coming months. Did you miss our previous livestream concert? You can watch it here:

In the studio

Chabliz spends time recording, mixing and mastering again in the studio, working on the new album. Soon we’ll record a few songs with guest musicians: a violinist, cellist, a viola player and a clarinetist. We’ll give a few concerts again. Check our concert dates for more info. Our next livestream concert will be on Sunday evening March the 20th, live on our YouTube channel (8:30 PM CET). Two weeks later we’ll play live on the Gluren bij de Buren festival.

Quick Shots Zoom interview on KMS Reviews

A few days ago we gave an interview on Zoom (partly due to corona) to Flo from KMS Reviews. You can watch or listen to the interview on YouTube, but also in your favorite podcast app. We talked about our new EP, the band’s history and the recordings of our upcoming album. This is the link to the interview:

New reviews, charts and more

Our interpretation of Joy Division’s legendary song ‘New Dawn Fades’ reached the Top 40 charts of music blog For The Love Of Music, right under Beach House. And there is more; the song also reached the Dutch Indie Advice List (on January the first and on January 8th, week 1). But most of all we are happy with the new review (in Dutch) on Ondergewaardeerde Liedjes. Our new songs appear on several playlists now. A few days ago we gave an interview on Zoom to Florian from KMS Reviews. This ‘Quick Shots’ interview will be published shortly.

Update January 24th: We just heard that our music video reached the top ten on the ESNS Streamsonic event, launched by Pinguin Radio! We reached number nine in their charts.

Happy 2022!

First of all, we wish you a very happy and healthy 2022! We had a good start of 2022 with recording sessions in the first week of the year, working on our next studio album. We also released our new music video just a few days ago, and that’s a quite different one than our other videos. The making of ‘In Bluebeard’s Garden‘ is our very first behind-the-scenes documentary film about the EP recordings (and some of our album recordings) last summer. You can watch it here:

The first results of these recording sessions are here:

The new EP is also available on Bandcamp, Soundcloud, Apple Music, iTunes, Deezer, Amazon, YouTube and several other music platforms.

During the next few months we continue working on our next complete album, that is due to be released in May or June. We also give livestream concerts (the next one is planned in March) and a few ‘real’ live concerts, corona volente.
