Herrek (NL)

Long a fixture in the Dutch underground scene, Groninger Gerrit van der Scheer cut his teeth as the frontman of Bonne Aparte and the guitarist for Adept before joining Luik and forming Herrek as a more lyrically-focused project. The band’s name derives from the fact that he lived in Indonesia as a child, and when local folks addressed him it came out sounding like ‘Herrek’. Musically, Herrek is purportedly inspired by bands incorporating tribal and mystical influences, such as Gang Gang Dance, Liars and Animal Collective, so it seems fitting that he incorporates memories of the jungle landscape and mysticism he encountered in Indonesia into the lyrics of debut album Waktu Dulu. Herrek will perform at 3voor12 Stage at Plaza Mozaique.
