In addition to causing a lot of frustration, the lockdown has also spawned many cool new bands. Schau Schau is one of them. The memories of their old band Kinoo gave bandmates Kalle Wolters and Maarten Huizing new life to their musical journey. Schau Schau makes post-punk and new wave which fits in the 80s style of bands like Talking Heads or the Parquet Courts. This can be heard in their single ‘Thermodynamics’, a post-punk song that builds up to a wild droney climax. Great music for just closing your eyes and dance like no one is watching.

If life feels bizarre, absurd and incomprehensible, this can make you very gloomy. Or you take matters into your own hands and put it into something creative like Plain Bizarre. The band addresses existential, social and personal themes. These themes are musically supported by catchy, fuzzy songs. Plain Bizarre describes itself as a drive-y, laidback and straightforward garage rock with slacker and punk influences carried over with a hint of discomfort. That’s a mouth full, but we are sure they are just going to rock!
