Introduce yourselves- where are you from and who plays what?
We are Den Haag and we are a Post Punk band from London. We are a 4 piece and we consist of Kristian (Vocals), Mike A (Guitar), Mike B (Bass) and Adam (Drums).
Describe your sound/lyric style
We have a raw uncomplicated sound just based on the instruments we play we haven’t really experimented with synths although we have been discussing the possibility of it on some songs in the future. Kristian is the lyricist of the band, he writes a lot of his lyrics based on real life events and his own personal experiences. We compose most of the tracks as a band; the musical content is a group thing.
Who are your main influences? What else inspires you?
We are heavily influenced by other Post Punk/New Wave bands a main Influence being Joy Division, other bands include Siouxsie And The Banshees, Depeche Mode and The Cure although there are a massive amount of other artists and bands that all of the members take their own personal influences that are from many genres.
