Press


“[Voicst] will be a compelling reason to go Dutch.” - Rocksound Magazine


‘Voicst take their name from a South African slang work meaning ‘manic energy’ and they’ve certainly got plenty of it on ’11-11’. They draw equally from the poppier side of post-grunge era from the 90’s power pop, melding chipper and punchy three-minute arrangements’. - Spin.com


“Potent power pop-rock that wipes enough fashion-punk snot in your ears to keep things from sounding sanitized. If you look at the complete picture, you’ll find a band providing an interesting take on goodtime grooves, zigging towards fun while emo kids zag to the dark side” ***1/2 - Rolling Stone Magazine (Australia)

Bio

Tjeerd Bomhoff is born in Amsterdam. Joppe Molenaar is born in Amsterdam. Sven Woodside is born in Canada… (he’s the barefoot one). They grow up. They meet as teenagers and realize they can all play instruments… They begin to play their instruments together. A lot. Voicst begins to make music. They release an EP called ‘Eat The Evidence’ on the Belgium label, labelman. While in New York City for CMJ they meet Girls Against Boys bassist Eli Janney and decide to make a record. “11-11” the album is born out of borrowed money, favors and band aids. Victor Van Vugt hears the basic tracks and decides to join the circus. He twiddles a few knobs, moves a few faders and mixes the album. Record gets released in Holland, Belgium, Spain, Australia, Japan, The United States and Canada.
People seem to like it: Band tours all over the world with everyone and anyone. Sleeping wherever they can. Band even wins awards with bizarre titles (Essents, 3voor12, Fabby) and finds their music showing up in even weirder places: Heineken and Google Commercials, Video Games (FIFA World Cup 2006), trendy TV shows (One Tree Hill) and at a few strip clubs. Despite all of this, some press people and others seem to like it: In 2008 Voicst camps out in Bridgeport, CT to record a new album with Peter Katis (Interpol, The National). They meet Bob Dylan the cat, and walk away with a record they are proud of. It is called ‘A Tale of Two Devils.’
