Powerful art-pop by distinguished singer and poet
Nynke Laverman is a poet, songwriter, spoken-word artist, explorer, theatre-maker and singer. With her new album, Plant, Nynke gives us a new version of herself. She enters the ‘whisper register’ of her voice and alternates between vulnerable, ethereal soundscapes and spoken word. The muted piano sounds and pulsating beats of Sytze Pruiksma effortlessly sweep you along in the cinematic world that these two musicians create together. It is precisely by doing less, by hesitating at times and by singing more softly, that Nynke’s appeal to us grows louder than ever: who do we want to be as people?
