Portsmouth Indie-Pop Three Piece, Dutch Criminal Record Share Upbeat New Single ‘Feel Good’
Portsmouth Indie, surf-pop trio DUTCH CRIMINAL RECORD are back once again. Having built a following thanks to the success of their previous releases which have seen the band gain Spotify Official playlist placements, even climbing into the US Viral Top 50 the indie surf pop trio are back with effervescent new single ‘Feel Good’, further solidifying the band's sonic identity through interweaving breezy drum beats with energising guitar work.
Speaking of ‘Feel Good’, Joe Delaney-Stone explains:
“I was listening to Orange Juice in my room (the song Rip It Up to be precise) idly playing guitar and the opening riff to Feel Good just sort of fell onto my fingers as I was playing along. I liked it so decided to write a song about feeling good as the riff had a chipper vibe to it, however once the lyrics formed it ended up being a sarcastic take on the keep calm and carry on, slap a smile on it attitude towards mental health.”
Having already gained the approval of Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 6 Music), Radio X and more the trio have supported the likes of indie heavyweights Sea Girls, Ra Ra Riot and Spinn. Their 2020 Spring tour was postponed due to the ongoing global crisis, however a live comeback is planned with their already sold-out show at Rough Trade in Bristol penciled late this year.
With their mixture of addictive guitar riffs, deep grooves and infectious vocal hooks, Dutch Criminal Record have quickly asserted themselves as ones-to-watch in the UK guitar scene. As a trio, they’ve seemingly effortlessly managed to combine their own varying influences to craft a jovial sonic identity, while incorporating catchy yet gripping lyricism.
