Douwe Bob Netherlands
Douwe Bob released his fourth album in November while consumed by heartache. The Amsterdam song wrtter wrote The Shape I'm In on an old ferry, and it’s partly about his broken heart and partly about reflecting on the true nature of the self. And yet it sounds surprisingly poppy. Bob and his five musical companions have turned away from the seventies and sixties sound of the previous albums with The Shape I’m In, an altogether more modern piece. A break-up record to dance to.
