We’ve been gone for a long time yes, living in different cities, doing different things, you know, it’s not easy keeping this blog running that way. But don’t worry, we’re still best friends and are still working together! This week we made a music video for Sold His Soul! We went to ‘Doel’ which is a very interesting village. Because they wanted to expand the port of Antwerp in the sixties, the villagers were forced to leave. However, the village is still there, or well… half there. Windows smashed in, furniture lying around, graffiti everywhere, and here and there some residents who refuse to leave until they absolutely have to. It’s like a little ghost town, and it’s so strange to imagine there are people who’s family has lived there for generations… Anyway, nowadays artists go there all the time, because it’s so inspiring. And we thought this abandoned gas station was the perfect location for our video! Do you like it?
Enjoy! And if you like the video, make sure to like it on youtube, it means a lot!
Lots of love from your seemingly gone but not really gone number one favourite band xx
A while ago we played some of our songs live at ‘Het Depot’ in Leuven and we just uploaded one of them on youtube, enjoy!
We can’t wait to start making music again!! xx TNT
How are you all doing? We have some pictures we forgot to upload! It’s us rehearsing for the Students on Stage concert. It was super cozy, and since the weather was so nice, we went outside and had a drink on the terrace afterwards. It truly was a lovely day!
For those who regularly read our blog, this is all very repetitive, but still, for those who don’t: a while ago we entered a competition called ‘Students On Stage’ which is organized by our university. We got into the semi-finals (yay for us!) and those were held yesterday! We had a blast! It was a super tiny stage (even though it was at held at a very popular location) but all three of us got on. “Three? My oh my, I though it was only two!” Nope! It is only two, but for one of our songs we hired a very dear friend of Jade to come help us out. He normally plays an entirely different kind of music, but he had a lot of fun doing this for a change. Check out his own band’s facebook HERE. Thank you Matthieu! We also have a new favorite prop called ‘Rocky Rawr’ which we taped onto the synthesizer (you can see him on the left). And of course we brought the usual amount of flowers, clocks, bird cages etc. It was very funny, since all the other bands that played were rock or metal bands, our poppy sound came as quite the surprise for the audience. Haha, maybe we should’ve taken pictures of their faces instead of our own, that would have made a good series of photos!
We didn’t get into the finals (check out who did HERE), but still, we had a good time! At the end of our performance, one of the people who worked there asked us if we wanted to play in their monthly open mic, because she liked our music. Guess when that open mic was? Also yesterday! So basically, we were there all day. Which means we’re very very tired now, so it’s time to get some sleep. =)
Scroll down to see some pictures! You can see the three of us on our tiny stage, and the last picture was taken during the open mic. Enjoy!
How are you all doing? We are super duper busy lately, because we have been selected for the semi-finals of Students on Stage! Seriously, what is up with us and competitions lately… We’ll be playing next wednesday, at 4 PM @HET DEPOT in Leuven. So anyone who is in the neighborhood: come watch us play! Here is the FB-link to the event: https://www.facebook.com/events/177109995779269/
The weather is going up and down here. Some days it’s super warm and then sometimes it’s like -BOOM- someone turned the sun off. Ah well, when the sun is out we can take lovely pictures like this one below! Check out how Jade’s outfit is all matchy matchy. Diadem, earrings, lipstick, (temp) tatto, dress, shoes… She almost never does that!
We wish you all a happy weekend!
Hello to all!
Here are some videos of us playing live, we hope you enjoy them! Two of the songs are new ones, and hopefully we can record them decently and upload them soon! Love, TNT
A couple of weeks ago we entered a competition, organized by a charity called ‘Art For Education’ which tries to gather money to help Nepalese children go to school. We went to the finals, which were held today! We had a lot of fun! We played I like it (which you can listen to below), and two new songs which we wrote especially for the cause. One of the songs is about pollution and garbage, and the other one is basically a wake up call saying “Let’s make this world a better place!” We’ll upload them soon enough, hopefully = )
We had some nice pictures taken during our performance, which you can check out below. Oh, and before we forget! To everyone in Belgium (and maybe even the Netherlands?): the 1st of May, we are playing in the semi-finals of ‘Students on Stage’ and you should all come, because the audience decides who goes to the finals! Bring everyone you know! More info HERE!
Lots of love,

Sorry for not posting any sooner but we’ve been pretty busy.. Last weekend we entered a competition called ‘Art for Education’ (HERE is their facebook page). The concept basically comes down to this: there is an organization called ‘Art for Nepal’ and they organize fundraisers now and then to try and help children in Nepal to get the education they deserve. This time, they turned it into a little competition where the bands have to perform in a preliminary round before going to the finals. Jade heard about the organization from a friend and we decided to enter the competition. That way we could earn some on-stage experience as well as support a good cause! We wrote a song especially for the cause, which will be uploaded very very soon, so stay tuned! We hope it inspires people to help others out.We were selected for the finals, yippie! So on the 20th of April we will be playing there again. If you’re in the neighbourhood (by which we mean you’re either in Belgium or really close to it anyway) come join us there! It’s super cozy and they serve the best mint tea! Check out some pictures of us playing below, and stay in touch because we’ll upload the new song soon!
Lots of love,
Tall and tiny
