OUT NOW

KAFKA is the two-headed band of Dafne Holtland and Frank van Kasteren, an amalgamation of musical contrasts.

Bring those two worlds together and you get KAFKA. The musical walking hand-in-hand of two people who have exactly what the other does not. How does that sound? Cheerful and thoughtful.

She: a sky-blue voice. As ‘up’ as it gets. Light, lyrical, rounded, and harmonic, yet brazen as rock ‘n’ roll.
