With a voice that is made for both pop and rock, Olga Taal is most certainly at home with these songs on "Fade into gold". She and Johannes Taal - Keyboards are from The Netherlands but moved to Brighton, England where they are based at the moment.
Perhaps the dance-rock scene in the U.K will open the door for Trip To Dover if they felt the door was closed back home.
"Fade into gold" is the follow-up to the 2014 EP "Kiss Fight Dance" but it´s the first time I get to hear about this talented duo.
Their music has elements of rock, 80´s synth pop and DJ-style electronics and it´s truly a winning formula when I listen to their new EP featuring the lovely single "I´ll be Juliet" that is one of the highlights along with the catchy "Boy".
For fans of Nero, Carpark North, Smashing Satellites.
