On 'Apathy Mixtape', Brighton based trio Dutch Criminal Record refine their vibrant indie-surf-pop sound.
After spending the past few years playing and selling out shows across the UK and the rest of Europe, Brighton based trio Dutch Criminal Record are back with their new project, ‘Apathy Mixtape’.
Produced by the band and Rob Quickenden, the project marks a return to their signature sound – a unique blend of indie-surf-pop – but with a fresh edge. Incorporating atmospheric elements and shoe-gazy sounds, its four tracks map out a cohesive but eclectic body of work. Balancing heartfelt lyrics, synths and big pop hooks with a heavy dose of rousing guitar and drums, it’s a mixtape to listen to to feel your best self.
Garnering support from the likes of BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Radio 1, as well being consistently spotlighted in Spotify Editorial playlists, Dutch Criminal Record are already claiming their space amongst the bands to watch for 2024. ‘Apathy Mixtape’ cements that position, elevating their sound and collective vision as a band. “Apathy we wrote quite a while ago and was a real team effort, probably one of the most collaborative writing efforts we’ve done in a while,” they affirm.
