After two years of playing together we're finally going to record our debut EP!
It will contain originals, covers and all the fun we had so far expressed in music.
To make this happen we need your help. That's why we started a crowdfunding campaign. Check out our promo-video and voordekunst.nl/iks to see how you can help and what kind of cool stuff you'll get in return!
IKS is a soulful pop band featuring young Jazz musicians who met during their studies in Amsterdam. With the uncommon set up of three completely different voices that blend wonderfully together, accompanied by a grooving rhythm section consisting of bass and guitar, they have a unique sound in their arrangements and original music. Without the expected drum set, they’re able to create an intimate atmosphere as well as gospel like explosions whenever the music needs it. In their own compositions the band combines their jazz-roots with their love for Pop and R&B.
Although based in the Netherlands, the five band members are from all over Europe. They started out in November 2015 with a cover of D'Angelo's Higher and have been creating music together since. The three singers are: Isla Van Hout, Bahghi Yemane and Sarah Zeleznik. Mikael Ásmundsson on guitar and Robert Rebane on bass guitar and loopstation.
In 2016 IKS released a series of live-videos of a living room session. They were guests in the radio program CoLive! of NPO Soul & Jazz and reviewed in the Jazzism. In May they were on tour in Estonia and coming fall the band will release their debut EP.
