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. Hand her an instrument and she’ll play, fingers flying with equal parts childlike innocence and formal training.
