Bosveld’s view of folk, seen through an electro-acoustic lens, gives the genre a welcome identity crisis. Meditative, processed saxophone weaves through cyclical, acoustic guitar rhythms; dropping mixtapes goes hand-in-hand with playing house concerts. Delicate vocals and tender songwriting merges with boundless synthetic fields.
Veldbrand, their latest CD, will be released in June via Pop Drone. Bosveld will tour Veldbrand across Ontario this summer by bicycle, hauling themselves and their gear from city to city by pedal-power alone, to take in Canada’s own rugged landscape along the way.
“Their music is unlike anything I have heard anywhere… an adventure through fields and dreamlands.”
