Navarone Short Info

NAVARONE

Navarone are a rock band from Nijmegen/Amsterdam, The Netherlands. In 2012, the 5-piece released their first full album called 'A Darker Shade Of White', which was mixed by the American Grammy Award winning producer Vance Powell (Beck, Jack White).
They received critical acclaim in their home country and beyond for the modern and innovative interpretation of the 70's rock and the lack of compromise with which the album was released.
Highly rated performances at the international music conference Eurosonic/Noorderslag and on Dutch national TV encouraged the word of mouth and resulted in a series of over 60 energetic performances at major festivals and sold out clubshows. Dutch beer brand Grolsch asked Navarone to write a song for a commercial and whiskey giant Jack Daniel’s tagged Navarone as ‘Future Legends’, asking Vice to make a short documentary about the band. Navarone are high-energy rock ‘n roll and gloomy and hypnotizing soundscapes, with powerful high vocals.

” Finally there is a group of young musicians with the talent to become really big, without having to do any artistic concessions to record a master debut album. A Darker Shade Of White easily matches The Black Crowes and Wolfmothers debut albums: instant classics, which seem to bundle the complete rock history. I haven’t heard a better Dutch rock album in years. “ - Jan Vollaard/NRC

" I’m extremely intrigued!" - Eric Corton

" Navarone proves to be a band with courage and vision. The seven songs form a stubborn, diverse and exciting rock album with a great sense of history and a sound that – especially in Holland – hasn’t been heard before. This is a very strong and overwhelming debut album! - KindaMuzik

" Live they prove to be a sensation. The album shows seven songs that all have a strong and recognizable seventies rock vibe, but are topped with a contemporary sauce. Exactly what the rock scene needs, all experts agree. " - MusicFrom.nl

" Navarone surely is a very talented group with a potential that reaches far beyond the Dutch borders. ... Lowlands can’t be far away " - De Gelderlander

" One of the best supports we ever had! " - Uriah Heep

“ We’ve had a lot of great supports, but you murdered them all! “ – Deep Purple tribute Purpendicular
