Goldband is a single-layer plaster used for interior walls and ceilings. It’s also the name of the band of Boaz, Karel and Milo. They have known each other since the age of 13 and claim to be plasterers. The latter claim is somewhat dubious. But they do know how to tear up a venue. They do so with happy tunes in Dutch on grown-up subjects like the climate, death and wanting children. ‘Wij zijn er klaar voor, ik wil een junior!’ they sing: we’re ready, I want a junior. Goldband is also very cheerful, like Doe Maar and Toontje Lager or 90s trance. Or maybe De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig with totally different music. It says a lot that Goldband are among the few bands who have broken out during the pandemic, with their excellent collection of songs entitled ‘Betaalbare Romantiek’ (2021).
