The Homesick

The Guardian labelled the Dutch trio The Homesick as eccentric, a bit mad, but a whole lot of fun, making scratchy, eclectic post-punky indie music. In the beginning of November 2019 the band was signed by Sub Pop from Seattle, known for bands as Nirvana, Mudhoney, Beach House, Low, Metz. Their new album The Big Exercise will be released on February 7, 2010. The teaser from the album “Celebrate My Fantasy” was just released as a single.

The Homesick

The Homesick was founded in 2012 in Dokkum, a fertile ground for alt bands, in the north of The Netherlands. In 2017, The Homesick released their debut album Youth Hunt, which was well received by the audience and the press. Last year they played in 15 different countries on their European tour.

The only performance in The Netherlands this year was last week at the music, literature and art festival Explore the North, held in Leeuwarden. The Homesick brought their show to a former gymnasium in a school. The venue was almost too small for the enthusiastic audience. Rock At Night had to squeeze in there just to shoot the band.

The Homesick is: Elias Elgersma (guitar, vocals), Jaap van der Velde (bass, vocals), Erik Woudwijk (drums)
