Paard: Will and the People
Touted as the new Police or the Specials, Will and the People do their happy reggae house rock thing at the Paard van Troje, The Hague on 4 April.
Rave magazine (Australia) calls Will And The People “the Rubik’s Cube of music.”
“The liberal blend of pop, ska, and reggae grooves flows directly from the quintet’s various influences,” says Rave.
The quintet in its current form, led by frontman Will Rendle with James Keo, Jim Ralphs, Charlie Harman and Jamie Rendle, was born in Glastonbury 2011. The band describe their sound as heavy chilled pop grunge reggae and their influences as Bob Marley, Nirvana, Supertramp.
The band have toured Italy, Germany, The Netherlands, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Canada, Australia and the UK and have developed a strong following.
“The Brighton five piece have an unrivalled energy to their sound and it pours into their music without apology or warning.” - Contact Music
“Mixing cheeky chappy ska with breezy indie, they’re the type of group you’ll have a dance about to in the sunshine at a festival after a couple of bottles of pear cider.” - The Londonist
