The Netherlands has a wonderfully self-contained, enormously creative music scene.
The nation's fetid underground has spawned numerous unique talents, the sort of musicians who simply couldn't spring from elsewhere.

New album 'Rats On Rafts / De Kift' drops on October 14th, with Clash able to premiere new cut 'Sleep Little Links 2 3 4' before anyone else.
It's a righteous noise – all blistering guitar and punchy vocals, the driving, demanding onward rush simply demands your attention.
