“#2” is the name of the 6-track album by Amsterdam-based Tyranni Flock. With musicians known for their work in the pop/rock scene (Jett Rebel, Aafke Romeijn) but also within jazz and classical (Martin Fondse, Jong Metropole) it comes with no surprise that this group presents fresh ‘fusion’ music. They see no reason to choose between electronic or acoustic music, synthesizer or woodwind. In this contrast lies unity.
“With a fusion sound, referring to the jazzrock of the 70’s, that fits today’s time. Hip, groovy, nerdy and very danceable. Genreborders do not apply, neither do cliches.”
– Matthilde Löffler (JazzHalo)
The group made quite the impression in 2018, releasing their debut EP and performing for the Dutch Jazz Competition. This year their new singles “Ujung Kulon” and “Dreamcatcher” were picked up internationally by a.o. the British Supreme Standards blog of the legendary Love Supreme Festival. A record full of catchy melodies and tight grooves, the screaming birds of Tyranni Flock claim their name.
