The fourth album is coming our way and is introduced to us with the magnificent lead single “Bitterzoet” (translated: bittersweet). The song follows the previous released singles “Lange Vinnen” & “Zwarte Zon” and is about being blindly in love and the threatening feeling that comes with love, because being in love can be scary sometimes. Love can go wrong and fail. “The song is about a romantic evening where there’s a anxious feeling.” Eefje says about the story. Not adding too much of a context, she wants people to fill in the story themselves.
Writing music that makes an impact is something every artist desires, but is a special craftmanship. Not everyone has the talent to write beautiful texts, but De Visser clearly has. “I listen to a lot of English music and I have a feeling that they use a lot of poetry without labelling it as poems. We don’t label, for example, Radiohead or Madonna as poets, but they sometimes have these abstract elements that make it come across as poems. I don’t see myself as a poet, but I think that it’s more natural to write texts in that format. It’s not necessarily my goal to write something poetic, it just happens.’.
