Biography

‘Totally Wired’ is the title of a tune by The Fall from 1980, it’s also the first thing that comes to mind when music fans listen to Voicst for the first time. Taking their name from a South African slang word meaning ‘Manic energy’; Voicst are a trio from Amsterdam who live up to the moniker.

When asked to describe their sound, drummer Joppe muses
“We are somewhere between Beyonce and The Melvins’.

The trio met at school in Amsterdam, formed a band and instantly began gigging. Early support from influential Dutch media outlet 3Voor12 and The Dutch Pop Institute led to a slot at the Dutch Lowlands festival and netted Voicst their first appearance at the New York CMJ Music Conference. The band has played exploratory tours of the US, and toured around Europe with the likes of: Bettie Serveert, Nada Surf, Tenacious D, Millionaire and The Bravery.

In New York the band hooked up with producer and Girls Against Boys alumni, Eli Janney (The Rapture, Secret Machines) to record their first full-length album, ’11-11’. The album is mixed by Victor Van Vugt (PJ Harvey, Beth Orton and Nick Cave) and has been released in Holland, Belgium and Spain (Duurtlang Records / PIAS) and in Australia (Shock).
