Hailing from a village outside Amsterdam, the frontman of indie-pop band Valerius is more introspective -- and a bit darker -- in his new solo venture. Reborn as Nambyar, Jesse Nambiar's alternative-R&B sound is best compared to the electro-tinged stylings of SOHN or Sampha.
The sound of CUT_ is a response to the English trip-hop and bass sound of the past decade, but with a modern twist. The electronic music duo is inspired by acts like Burial, Mount Kimbie, Massive Attack, and James Blake. At live shows, don’t expect them to play their set list lazily: be prepared for musical freestyling with new compositions being created on the spot. To top it all off, their live show programmer/visual artist makes sure the night will be sprinkled with a hint of glitz.
