Don't look now but the Netherlands has established itself as an indie rock hotspot.
With a plethora of groups making themselves known, it seems that a new hopeful is landing on our desks every other day.
Banji are a ludicrously talented four-piece whose knack for coughing up skewed indie jammers had made them The Name To Drop in their homeland.
Take new single 'TalkieWalkie'. Surreal guitar pop with a naggingly infectious melody, 'TalkieWalkie' builds on those early releases while steering Banji in a fresh, ridiculously entertaining direction.
As vocalist Morris Brandt explains: "I wanted to write down some of the conversations I had with myself in the shower, cause that's really the only place I can actually win arguments."
"I thought that was a fun concept for a song, but I ended up writing about frustration. Being tied up and missing a sense of freedom and forwardness. Trying to handle that, but failing to consider all the way up to the point you'd rather spend your energy screaming at a wall."
We're able to share the video before anyone else, and it's the perfect entry point into the bizarre yet wonderful world of Banji.
