Introducing Van Pletzen!
Van Pletzen: A Good Vibe Project:
Announced today, Peach van Pletzen, also from Bittereinder and Yesterday’s Pupil, has now jumped into working with long time friend; Matthieu “Makkie” Auriacombe, also from Hello Beautiful and Beach Party: Working on their latest musical creative project: VAN PLETZEN.
Van Pletzen is probably one of his most outrageously unserious work’s I’ve heard and seen in ages, and I love it!
Van Pletzen is a super fun new Afrikaans music project. In these times of turmoil, Van Pletzen’s mission: “Is to make the world a better place by spreading a lekker vibe and by showing you a really, really good time.”
What you need to know about Van Pletzen, is that it’s not serious, quite the opposite actually. As the band days: We don’t take ourselves too seriously and believe that neither should you.
The Van Pletzen project was conceived how all the best things usually are – over a few cold beers. “Makkie, my partner in this project, and I decided over a few beers to make ourselves a feel good vibe. I love humour and this project gives me the outlet to use humour with cool music. We are very proud of the outcome.” says Peach van Pletzen.
Van Pletzen gets their party started with the release of their first single: Eiland Styl (Island Style).
Van Pletzen Goes To Oppi!
As you can see and hear, this latest release and of their good vibe project has a vibe so great that Oppikoppi booked them for this year’s festival without Van Pletzen ever having played a live show and before they even released this music video!
Definitely, something to look out for at this year’s Oppi alongside all the good vibes that are going that way this year!
