Tuesdays got talent III

Today we got a folk trio from the Netherlands (Utrecht) for the tuesdays got talent issue. They are called Oh Brave Wide Eyes
The members are: Annelotte de Graaf, Casper Broekaart en Myrthe van de Weetering. Their songs are pure and very intimate. They released their debut EP in januari 2012 and it's called "The Tascam Recordings". All their songs are recorded analogue (Tascam is a brand of multitrack recorders). They sound a bit like Fleet Foxes and I hear some Blaudzun influences. The songs are very straightforward and pure, no overdubs, no effects, just guitar, chamber-organs (the pre-electric one they call "harmonium" in Dutch, this is a organ where you pump the air in with your feet)and their voices. Here's the song Purpose and Place. They were a support act for Dry the River and are selected for "Popronde" a Dutch travelling festival in 32 cities across the country. Here you can listen to their EP and if you want you can download it for free.
