“The Serenes were a rock band from Joure, Friesland, The Netherlands. They formed in 1988 and disbanded in 1994. Their jangle pop music is comparable with the music of bands like The Feelies, The Chills and the early sound of R.E.M.. The sound of their guitars and vocals are best described as bright and clean. Their songs contain melancholy English lyrics, inspired by the serenity and loneliness of the silent and flat sceneries of Friesland. Both of their albums are well recognized by Dutch music critics. Still their albums have a top status in the history of the Dutch underground scene. Barefoot and Pregnant, their first album, was released in 1990. This album contains 10 tracks, of which Rebecca (You're Gonna Be Allright) was the first single, Abiding Place the second.” (From Wikipedia).
What a fantastic album. This is probably one of the finest records ever produced in Holland. An underground classic. Just give it a try.
