Karolien Van Ransbeeck is the dreamy voice on Few Bits you could recognise among a thousand others. Both ‘Anyone Else’ and ‘Summer Sun’ are taken from the Antwerp-based band’s sophomore album ‘Big Sparks’, set for release in the UK on 30 September.
She and her group are clearly looking for adventure on this release. Heading towards a new beginning. The new path leads through the no man's land between contemporary indie favourites likes Beach House and Real Estate and timeless classics like The Cure and Fleetwood Mac. Few Bits version 2.0 is bursting with vitality. You can even dance to it.
Karolien Van Ransbeeck’s vocals have been compared to Lana Del Ray, but they’re certainly more appealing. Soft and honest she swoons in the chorus “I want to go anywhere and dream away”, these hazey lines drifting through glistening guitars.” - Stereogum
