Psychedelic blues trio DeWolff have revealed their brand new song ‘California Burning’, taken from their upcoming album ‘Thrust’, which will be released on Mascot Records.
The band formed in the Netherlands’ Deep South of Geleen as teenagers in 2007 by singer/guitarist Pablo van de Poel, brother/drummer Luka van de Poel and Hammond organist Robin Piso.
“We’re very proud to present the first s from our new record, California Burning,” the band say. “Contrary than the title of the song suggests, it isn’t about forest fires at all. It’s about living in a loudmouth society where people who scream the loudest always seem to get what they want, may be it money, power or… presidency. The video was shot on VHS and 8MM film by Sven Signe Den Hongartogh and Edwin van der Sande during DeWolffest. The song is heavy, and trust us, THRUST is going to be heavy! Now turn it up cause it’s the most wonderful time of the year: DeWolff Time!”
They’re an old soul in a young body, transporting the listener back into the swirling psychedelia drenched blues of the mid-60s. The trio combine an eccentric mixture of inexhaustible energy, great musicianship, contagious enthusiasm and a play-like-it’s-your-last-show-mentality that have seen them light a trail across Europe selling out headline shows, playing festivals such as Pinkpop, Lowlands, Reeperbahn, Rockpalast, Sziget and pick up prestigious support slots with Deep Purple, The Black Keys. They count Seasick Steve as a fan who watched a whole set at Rock Oz Arenes in Switzerland saying “I closed my eyes and I heard the Allman Brothers playing in the 70s.” He was so blown away by what he saw, he insisted on introducing them to Robert Plant afterwards.
They will be playing an album release show at the Paradiso, Amsterdam on 4th May 2018.
