Mister and Mississippi (NL)
In their early twenties, the foursome became acquainted with the spotlights through their support shows for Blaudzun and Patrick Watson.The band quickly won the hearts of V2 Records as well as those of indie and folk music-lovers in the realms of Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes and Sigur Rós.
In the voices of Maxime Barlag and Samgar Jacobs, and the guitars of Danny van Tiggele and Tom Broshuis: balance plays a vital role in the music of Mister and Mississippi. They complete each other within the music, their distinct sounds at times blending together as one. The songs on their new album We Only Part to Meet Again are full of depth, creating space for new shades of colour in their arrangements, such as the addition of horns and strings. The album is a voyage, dynamic and and at times overwhelming, that reveals the presence of a band with unmistakable international promise.
