This proved to be a master move: they were so productive that they decided to start Voltanz. This isn’t their first band; the two multi-instrumentalists have played together in several bands since the end of the nineties. They started out with punkrock and noise, but after a while Finx and Tuil moved towards more melodic music, inspired by bands like The Cure, Blonde Redhead and Interpol.
With Voltanz, the duo from Groningen is moving to the next level. The name is a combination of Volta (change) en Tanz (dance). This isn’t coincidental: the tracks are catchier than their previous work and can be described as a mix of indiewaverock and electropop from the eighties, nineties and zeroes, with a twist. Recurring themes are loss, the inexorability of time and the confusion surrounding our existence. The first single Leika is about long-lost summer loves.
Voltanz is accompanied by several musicians. Tuil sings and plays guitar, Finx plays the bass: the instruments with which they started out.
