The Calicos – Nova

The Calicos are Quinten Vermaelen, Aäron Koch, Sander Smeets, Maximilian Dobbertin, Guido Op de Beeck and Olivier Penu. Six young guns from the city of Antwerp in Belgium. In the spring of 2018, they won Humo’s Rock Rally, a two-yearly contest for rock bands, organized by magazine Humo. The band blew the jury away with their own brew of indie, rock, Americana and alternative country. Songs in the tradition of Wilco, Ryan Adams and The War On Drugs, pedal steel guitar included.

Following the singles Our House, Driftwood and Runaway Kid, the band took their time to fine-tune their songs and sound. Tobie Speleman (Geppetto & The Whales, Blackwave. and others) helped them achieve this goal. Now, they confidently announce ‘a killer maiden album’ as a result. We’ll be able to check that next November.

Nova, the first single to be released ahead of that debut record is very promising indeed. The Calicos have developed into an alternative pop group with the ability to appeal to a large audience of all ages.
