If you’re looking for relatively undiscovered gems in musical terms, Europe is always a pretty good place to look. Our mainland cousins sometimes don’t break through in English speaking territories quite as often as they should; be it because of the language barrier, cultural differences or the lack of anyone willing to take a chance.
Still, when word came back to us about Abdomen from last week’s Eurosonic Noorderslag festival in Groningen, it was enough to pique our interest. Yes, that is a slightly odd name for a band, but their 180mph garage rock isn’t. In your face, direct as fuck, the three piece from Leeuwarden, Netherlands sound like they’re up for a scrap to catch the attention.
Check out their one of their most recent tracks ‘Man Of Stone’ below, then widen your borders and find more on SoundCloud here.
