Objevy 2018: VanWyck

V Holandsku narozená, na Novém Zélandě vychovávaná. Jméno Van Wyck je poameričtěná verze holandského Van Wijk.

Žánr dark-folk, blízké hudbě Nathalie Merchant, Laury Marling, Marissy Nadler, Fiony Apple, ale i Damiena Rice a hlavně Leonarda Cohena. První EP Tanned Legs (2015) je k poslechu třeba na bandcampu (https://vanwyck.bandcamp.com/). Teď vychází regulérní cd An Average Woman, stream u bluegrasssituation (https://thebluegrasssituation.com/read/stream-vanwyck-an-average-woman).

„An Average Woman is about women who are visible and hidden, sacrificing and selfish, ordinary and magical, obligated and free. It’s about the mysteries lurking in the everyday. It’s about creating your own universe and your own sense of belonging – and stumbling along the way“ píše VanWyck na svých stránkách (https://www.vanwyck

Na soundcloudu a hlavně youtube najdete písní mnohem víc, včetně cyklu One song a week (https://www.vanwyck.nl/one-song-a-week).

Tracky k pozornému poslechu An Average Woman


Some girls build towers, others dig deep

Some pray to angels,

some wait and see
Some girls stay quiet, some scream in your face
Some kill their darlings, some hesitate

And I, I was an average woman
I tried to do good, I tried to be kind
Kept my head above water
Most of the time, most of the time

Some girls eat fire, some stick to their guns
Some dance on the tables and have all your fun
Some girls have answers, some retaliate
Some take on oceans, some take on fate

And I, I was an average woman
I tried to do good, I tried to be kind
Kept my head above water
Most of the time, most of the time

I struggled and failed and I laughed at your jokes
I came to your aid when you needed me most
I screamed like a fury in the dead of the night
And curled up beside you to make right

nebo Listen To You Breathe

a určitě i o něco starší Ballad of the Quiet Citizen aneb „Cohen v sukních“, která se na CD nedostala

I did not blow up any buildings
I did not wage no phony wars
I did not ask for admiration
or drew attention to my words

I was humble, I was easy
I was quiet, I was kind
I looked out for my neighbours
In the deadest of the night

And you think you can ignore me
or freeze me up in fear
But I stand with the many
And our whispers will begin
to fill up your voids
and to rise over your walls

one by one we will join
our hands across your borders
two by two we will choose
to stand up for each other
your hate it shouts
but love speaks louder still

I turned the other cheek
I payed my income tax
I took care of those in need
and tried to give them hope again

I built your cars, laid down your streets
I cooked your meals and cleaned
Your restaurants, your trains and planes
and I taught your kids to read

And you think you can deride me
and take away my pride
But I stand with the many
and our whispers will collide
to fill up your voids
and to rise over your walls

One by one we will join
our hands across your borders
two by two we will choose
to stand up for each other
your hate it shouts
but love speaks louder still

Ohlasy veskrze pozitivní. Několik písní lze zdarma postahovat z webu.

 

A že holandská scéna je poslední dobou zajímavá prokazuje navíc loňská debutovka (https://soundcloud.com/luwten) jiné zajímavé písňové autorky Tessa Douwstra (dříve v kapele Orlando – https://youtu.be/roDydjitmLM nebo https://youtu.be/4hymq6L1-6U) aka Luwten
