Biography

“Great demo, where’s the record deal?”
(Fret magazine, Netherlands, March/April 2010)

The Dutch alternative rock formation A Liquid Landscape is ready for it. Their new demo, entitled “Long Lost Traveler,” displays intelligent songwriting and gives a clear impression of what this band is capable of doing live: subdued and compelling riffs, followed by intense eruptions.

Formerly known as Believeisadoubt, the band has played extensively in the Netherlands for the last five years. Some of the highlights include a place in the finals of the Dutch Grand Prize, opening for Within Temptation, and a showcase in Birmingham UK. Recently, however, they decided to drastically change their musical direction and start over with a brand-new name.

This new direction, influenced by bands such as Dredg, Porcupine Tree and Mutemath, results in daring compositions. Nonetheless, their new songs are convincing because of the vast musical experience of the band members, as well as their long history of playing together.

With positive reviews, the experience of having played over 150 shows, and confidence in their new approach to music, A Liquid Landscape is ready to take the scene by force!

Reviews (translated):

Fret magazine, Netherlands:
‘Great demo, where’s the record deal?... The fragile vocals seamlessly flow together with the airy, rippling guitar sounds, supported by dreamy, thick bass lines and jazzy drums… A Liquid Landscape has long since passed the demo phase.’

LiveXS, Netherlands:
‘… In any case, the sound is more serious and explorative. I can conclude from the first three tracks that this fresh start has been anything but a bad decision.’

Progworld, Netherlands:
‘…As such “Long Lost Traveler” – which, by the way has an excellent production and presentation- is a document that shows the potential of A Liquid Landscape.’

UpMagazine, Netherlands:
‘… A daring move for any up and coming band, to change their course so radically. But in the case of A Liquid Landscape, the decision turned out to be a very good one. The four members focus their efforts on getting the right mood, more so than before. As a band, you then take the risk of losing yourself by endlessly playing around, but in the case of A Liquid Landscape, this only results in very exciting music.’
