Podcast Episode #234 THE COOLER SIDE OF JAZZ

Amatorski is a Belgian post-rock band consisting of Inne Eysermans, Sebastiaan Van den Branden and Christophe Claeys.  Amatorski was formed in 2008. The group became famous after reaching the final at the Humo’s Rock Rally in 2010. The band name comes from the Polish word for amateurish, accordingly the group records its music in low fidelity. Apart from that their music is also characterized by a melancholic, blurry style in which the texts are often very narrative. This is expressed in their record Come home for which singer Inne Eysermans found inspiration by reading the love letters from her grandmother that were written during World War II. This song gained fame since it was used in Belgium during publicity spots for water brand Spa Reine.In 2011 they travelled to London, England to work with producer Darren Allison (Spiritualized, The Divine Comedy, Belle & Sebastian) on their debut album TBC.[2] Upon its release, TBC garnered much critical acclaim, and ascended to number 5 in the Belgian album chart. Later that year, the album received nominations in several categories, at the Belgian Music Industry Awards.Their style was often compared to that of Portishead and Sigur Ros.[3]In 2014, Dominik Scherrer composed a new orchestral version of their song “Come Home”, which is used as the opening theme of acclaimed BBC One and Starz drama The Missing.
