Polish Post-Rock duo Oudeziel released their self-titled debut EP on July 19, 2023 via Rock Company. “Oudeziel” is a Dutch word, a pun on old souls. According to Far Eastern philosophy, after five incarnations, the human soul grows old. This is closely related to the band’s philosophy during the songwriting process.
As the band stated: “It is an experience. Old souls are usually considered a bit old-fashioned and that is also the case with music. We don’t follow trends, we try to convey emotions, experiences gained from playing and create sounds by taking cues from different styles.“
There are two videos you can watch on YouTube:
Oudeziel mixes Post-Rock with elements of Progressive Rock and Dream Pop. The result is a sound that does not want to resemble that of any particular artist, but aims to represent life in all its majesty, as well as in the multiplicity of positive and negative moments. Listening to this EP, consisting of five tracks for a total of 26 minutes, takes us back to our adolescence, when we discovered the world guided by innocence. Until reaching adulthood, entering the hectic world that deprives us of happiness to make us familiar with pain.
The EP is available as a CD on the label’s official website: https://rockcompany.nl/shop/oudeziel-oudeziel/
