Feng Suave, or ‘Smooth Wind’, [| ˌfʌŋ ˈ swɑːv |] are a Dutch psych-pop duo from Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Through their music, the warbles of warm synth work team up with lo-fi percussions and chilled-out vocals, not to mention the sea-sick and stoned guitars that layer within the music smoothly.
In their debut track, ‘Sink Into The Floor’, the duo showcase their signature slow vibe of funky bass, intimate falsetto vocals mixed with retro shuffled keys, chorus-drenched guitars and an overall classic song writing style. In launching their debut EP – the two-some threw some psyche jam onto their toast, showing off their 70s influences and resulting in a lo-fi duet that’s reminiscent of Allen Stone or the more common Homeshake. Shortly after, the tunes were unearthed by Iggy Pop and spun across BBC 6 Music with the wider support of tastemakers such as Lauren Laverne, The Line Of Best Fit and Indie Shuffle – all recognising the band and their exciting sound.
Since, the band have sold out two hometown shows in Amsterdam, within 30 hours of going on sale, and have already supported acts Khruangbin (USA), Tora (AUS) and Sandy (Alex G), as well as playing the Gransapolsky Festival, Metropolis Festival and Into The Great Wide Open Festival across The Netherlands.
With such a natural, organic rising within the soundscapes of the modern music world, Feng Suave showcase their ability to create such mind-altering music that sets them up for their forthcoming releases and for a very strong and established near-future.
