Eelke – Too Much Too Soon

Dutch musician and songwriter Eelke Ankersmit writes and records music the way he wants to. This makes for a no-nonsense, unique and personal sound. Musically, 2020 was a good year for his band Eelke. In the second half of the year alone, they released two great singles. Both of them highly recommended (which I did through these columns). Remarkably, his latest single I’m A Man was playlisted by both alternative rock station Kink, and NPO Radio 5, which aims at the elderly.

The latter station is unlikely to become a great supporter of Eelke’s newest track Too Much Too Soon, as it is his loudest so far. However, there’s a strong contrast between the aggression in the verses and instrumental parts, and the melancholy in the choruses. Ankersmit explains: “Too Much Too Soon describes the fear of hurting someone else by protecting yourself, having no choice but to do so. It’s about being unable to let go of the past, and therefore being unable to commit to the present.”
