Slide #1: Where are you from?

Their debut EP Sunrise Reprise is released February 2016 and is available through iTunes, Spotify etc. A limited edition CD with a Slideshows magazine will be sold at live shows.

Slide #3: Where’s the release launch?

The debut gig was 17 March at Paradiso, Amsterdam. The gig was part of an Off Amsterdam label night. For new shows check the live section.

Slide #4: What’s up with the slides?

The Slideshows are obsessessed with old slides. Found footage shapes both music and image: obscure private collections of families from the 70s and 80s are used as a live backdrop. Many of these slides spark the beginning of new songs. The thrift store score of a private slide collection of a Belgian family (four decades of family slides), started the story of the magazine that comes with the CD.

Slide #5: Who are you?

The Slideshows are: Marcel Hulst (vocals /guitars), Floor Stevens (drums) and Auke van der Wielen (bass / synths)

Slide #6: What’s next?

The Slideshows will play their debut EP live as of March 2016, and will continue working on new material for their second EP in their newly build studio in Amsterdam.
