Pomrad (zaterdag)

Live electro-band, dansbaar van noot 1 tot een uur na de laatste noot, Funk vanuit het hart

Pomrad a.k.a. Adriaan Van de Velde has lots of it in his colourful trickster bag. Just check out the title track of his album: its beats chug like the wheels of a locomotive and electrifying synth solos guarantee the best brain freeze you’ve ever felt.

Pomrad’s very first eps were cool calling cards that made a couple of heads turn. After his first solo performances, Pomrad dropped the jack-of-all-trades shtick and assembled a full-blooded band, with a drummer and a second keyboard player beefing up his signature sound. Together they’re a party squad with a couple of nifty tricks up their sleeves. You want some cosmic funk, Herbie Hancock style? You got it..

Now, Knights tries to exceed expectations and transcends the aforementioned comparisons, taking a leap into the unknown. Pomrad clearly has found his own voice. What’s next? Well, dreaming up a fantasy world where his musical creations can roam free, apparently.
