“When I was a teenager, I used to stand in front of my guitar amps turning them up so loud I could literally feel every chord, every note, through my body. Back then I drew from sounds I heard in post-hardcore and post-rock. I’d sing into this wall of sound coming at me from the speakers. I never felt something that powerful, overwhelming. This would be my escape.
Like a blanket of sound I could wrap myself in while lying down, looking up at the stars. And it’s still how it feels when we play”.
Bo – vocals/guitars for Aestrid
Aestrid is a three-piece band from Soest, the Netherlands. Their sound balances between post-punk and ambient electronic music meeting the wideness of shoegaze in the middle. Whether it is about the randomness while improvising, or the perfectionism that used to rule the early days of the band, Aestrid is always about the feeling that remains.
This fall, Aestrid will return to Canada for the fifth time, playing throughout Ontario. Every show is known to be an intense experience for both audience and band. Not holding back and delivering everything until the last note.
Their new single ‘I Dream Of You And Me’ will be released October 5th. And a new album release is set for February 2018.
