Roos and Sebastiaan about Many Hours Still to Come:

Many hours still to come - we hope there will be! To make music, perform, create and have a good time together. We didn't set out to make a CD, as we played our first show in January 2011. But after many requests - by people whose name we can't remember, but would like to thank all the more - here we are!
The title is an excerpt from the song 'Tattoo City' about Roos wandering in the city of Barcelona in the late 1990s and reflects a timeless place in our imagination. It is a song we have both taken to heart right from the beginning of our cooperation and has been an integral part of our live shows for years now.

The CD Many hours still to come is the result of more than four years of mutual inspiration and dedication and we really hope you like it!
