MIKELE AND THE MATTRESS
"Mikele and the Mattres is an Antwerp based project formed in the end of 2013. It started as a collaboration between the extinguished band “Botsotto” with Mario and Michele. Soon adopting a different posture torwards music making, another name was adopted as to form a new band. The first EP, The Trains that Lead to Antwerp, was producted in collaboration with Honeysound (barcelos, PT) and consists in a set of 6 songs which sonorities vary between progressive, psychedelic tunes and post-rock. This EP was based on the works of portuguese writer Herberto Helder."
in hun eigen woorden: "A group of spacebirds singing their songs, playing their tunes, never compromise, for the love of music! It's all about the sound and it sounds like wondering souls dancing in the evening sun, sweating, falling down in the sand, getting black up. Frankie Flash, Cosmic Monday and Lazer Lucy are pleased to have finally found the right knights to put the sound together. Let's play, let's stay, forever feeling free."
