Melancholy meeting of folk, country and indie rock with trips to ambient

Nagasaki Swim is the indie folk project around Jasper Boogaard. Jasper finds his home in Rotterdam but found his musical equals elsewhere; namely in Philadelphia. With his predilection for folk, country, ambient and field recordings, Nagasaki Swim brings dreamy melodies and melancholy choruses. Together with Jim Luijten, Jasper Werij and Kat Kalkman, he has already made many flying hours in the Rotterdam scene.

A musical microcosm of everyday chaos and melancholy. That’s how you could describe the songs of Cloud Cafe. The Amsterdam musicians Tara, David, Tom and Dirck create reflective lyrics and refuse to smooth out imperfections. The result? Melodic folk with a 90’s grunge edge, supported by organic drumming with gritty bass and guitar sounds.
