The Bohemes are a genrefluid guitar band from The Netherlands. Dex de Fijter, Nigel de Vette and brothers Gabriël and Léon Huisman have been playing together since 2020.
The energetic four piece describe their sound as “poetic garage rock in a fur coat”. At the heart of their music is an insatiable desire for telling stories in the shape of songs.
In July 2020, their first single `Von Fisennepark` was released under their own label. Due to Corona restrictions the single was recorded partly from the band members’ homes.
Their second single `Would You?` is released on October 30.
Before 2020 The Bohemes were active in a different formation doing support for De Staat and Bettie Serveert on their Pharmacy of Love album tour including a final show in Paradiso. Other highlights are a tour in the UK, being voted LiveXS Local Heroes twice and starring in a KinkFM/V-Acadamy tv show called Plug de Band.
The clock it ticks and says your time has come
The tv glows and shows that you’re the one
Then everything around you started shaking as it turned into a song
And I will try my luck before I’m gone
Step by step you get a little closer to the sun
one more thing you need to know goodbye I’m on the run
And slowly you will start to feel a change
And soon you won’t remember your name
Have you got what it takes?
Are you still awake?
In case you have forgotten
I keep a picture in my brain
Now all my days have darkened
Are yours darkened by the same?
If I told you that a lonely heart is beating for you in the dark
Would you fall for me? Would you fall for me?
And if something took a hold of me and I went beyond what you could see
Would you follow me? would you follow me?
Are we dissolving into nothing?
Don’t let it slip away
Now all my nights are haunted
Are yours haunted by the same?
If I said that I’d fall apart and wait for you in the dark
Would you come for me? Would you come for me?
And if someone took a hold of me and I went beyond what you could see
Would you fight for me? Would you fight for me?
If the world would turn to you and me and played our song on repeat
Could you fall for me? Could you fall for me?
And if I went through the flames for you rose from the ashes made it through
Would you fight for me? Be the one for me?
