Dutch diary music with songs about love, wandering and heartache
Descend into the underground world of Esther de Jong (Dokkum, 1994), brimming with songs about love, going lost, wandering and heartache. A place where it perhaps may mainly be suffocating, grey and dismal, but where there is always room to dig down even deeper. She simply loves to dig. This Dutch diary music will confront you with lyrics that will either take you aback, stop you in your tracks or open your eyes. Among what she will be presenting at Explore the North is a new single from her debut album, which will be released in the near future by her record label Excelsior Recordings. Hopefully, her forlorn lyrics will hit slightly closer to home than you might prefer, since grief shared is grief unburdened.
