It was a fairytale beginning. Drummer Dave Schroyen (Evil Superstars, Millionaire) and bassist Jacky Willems (Heisa) went to see the band Peuk. These veterans of some of the best bands in the Limburg music scene were flabbergasted by the presence of Nele Janssen, the trio’s delicate frontwoman. Jacky suggested they jam together sometime, while Dave offered to become their manager. However, it turned out that the rhythm section was quitting and there were two vacancies! Bingo! The new Peuk was born. The trio is all about passion and emotion. Noise with melody. Tender for the soul. Elements of Hole, Pixies, Sonic Youth and riot grrrl ring in the ears. Their second album, ‘Escape Somehow’ (2023), was the springboard to something even greater. “The album feels like screaming into the abyss, and finding that the abyss screams back,” wrote De Standaard.
