Even though there is not a lot of room for acoustics in the music that’s dominating today’s waves, we can’t deny that peaceful tunes are omnipresent right now. Felix Pallas’s music can and cannot be added to this category.

This young band has been paving the path in Belgium through regional contests in recent years, and now seems ready to try and conquer the rest of the world. The members probably won’t play their own songs in their van, but we’re convinced that many other people will.
