Hollands

HOLLANDS is an orchestral-rock-pop band from Brooklyn, NY. Deemed "freak-poppers" by Christopher Weingarten of the Village Voice, HOLLANDS music is inspired as much by Stravinsky and Bach as Bob Dylan, Kanye West and Father John Misty. Formed in 2009, Hollands is the musical "fireworks" of John-Paul Norpoth and Jannina Barefield-Norpoth. HOLLANDS has self-released two EP's in 2009, Faces (EP) and Mother (EP) to critical acclaim. Independently, they broke into the Top 100 of the College Radio (CMJ) charts and captured great reviews from local, national, and international press outlets. HOLLANDS just finished work on 12 brand new songs for their Debut LP. This Kickstarter will help fund self-release on Vinyl and CD (Digi-Pak) for HOLLANDS' fans and supporters. HOLLANDS' needs $6,500 to produce a limited edition run of (250) vinyl records and (1000) Compact Discs. Please take a moment to preview the songs at Hollands' SoundCloud and we hope you will consider funding this new and exciting release. hollandsss.com Brooklyn Street Artist DAIN (Elle Magazine, New York, London, and Paris galleries, abandoned buildings, mail boxes, and unexpected locations throughout Brooklyn) has agreed to create the album art for this new release. Dain's unique style of 1950's hollywood glam and surreal urban graffiti is a perfect match for Hollands' music. You can read an interview with DAIN and see some of his work here. HOLLANDS plans to produce the vinyl with local shop Brooklyn Phono, just down the block from Trout Recording, in Brooklyn, NY. (brooklynphono.com). Hollands t-shirts, stickers, and hooded sweatshirts are produced by Tiny Fish in Rochester, NY. The Digi-Pak CD's for Hollands' previous releases were produced by Discmakers in New Jersey. (www.discmakers.com) Thus, the Hollands' Kickstarter will be a culmination of lots of hard work and "sweat equity" made in the USA. Amazing contributions and incentives from artists Barbara Barefield, Spencer Barefield, and Chris Ward of CTW Metal in Rochester who have donated their time and talents to help us reach our goal. Following a short break in 2010, (Hollands members married and found themselves in a new home in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn where they share a musical community with other distinct artists) Mr. and Mrs. Norpoth began the process of writing songs for their Debut (LP), recording ideas in bedrooms, closets, and even bathrooms. Basic tracks of drums, electric bass, and electric guitars ensued with Colby Devereux at Copperfish Sound. Overdubs and mixing continued with Adam Sachs and Bryce Goggin at Trout Recording in Brooklyn, NY.
