Severant, a new and talented four piece from the Netherlands, brings to life righteous psychedelic sounds by combining their love for the late 60’s and early 70’s fused with their attraction to the dark. They take influences from musical adventures such as Pink Floyd and The Devil’s Blood. Expect beautiful melodies and harmonies floating on a deep groove, contrasted with heavy guitar parts.

Four hard working musicians started their journey together in Eindhoven, Netherlands. They’ve found each other out of both emotional and musical necessity. In the faithful summer of 2019, Severant came to life in the crucible of Roadburn. Inspired and hungry, these four young men entered their rehearsal room and wove their cosmic sounds together into a wicked jam that they later released as the demo track “Sunyata” and managed to get the attention of a great deal of rock fans and bookers with their debut show in The Little Devil in Tilburg. On their Isolation Sessions live stream show they proved once again that they’ve got an interesting and a hypnotizing quality. As a brand-new promising band, things were going skywards for them with a lot of excellent shows planned which – to their dissatisfaction – had been cancelled due to the pandemic. This could not stop them writing and recording an incredible record, however.
In March 2020 two great tracks were recorded, forming their upcoming debut EP in Moon Studio under the hands of revered producer and engineer Pieter Kloos. The EP brings to life the interpretation and performance of something they call dark psychedelic rock. Taking influences from musical adventures such as Pink Floyd and The Devil’s Blood, beautiful melodies and harmonies floating on a deep groove, contrasted with heavy guitar parts will make you take off to a journey through their minds.
Severant brings to life righteous psychedelic sounds by the combining their love for the late 60’s and early 70’s fused with their attraction to the dark. A steady groove laid down by drummer Koen Steendijk locked in with the melodic bass parts played by Riccardo Subasi granting total freedom to the untamed and wild guitar riffs played by Erik van Liempd and Loet Braamkolk that cover the harmonic area of their sound. The emotionally loaded vocals sung by Erik carry the songs to new territory, revealing sincere heart and soul to the mix. They give birth to their songs with elaborate jams resulting to the organic feeling that Severant brings, which is the essence of the band.
