2016 EU repressed on standard LP- Indie pop group from Amsterdam led by Croatian/Dutch singer/songwriter Marina Tadic. Sometimes musical collaborations sound like car crashes between two different elements that never belonged anywhere near each other. And sometimes when musicians get together, it sounds like a union of complementary visions. Case in point: Eerie Wanda's debut album, Hum. The pairing of Dutch singer/songwriter Marina Tadic and bassist Jasper Verhulst of Jacco Gardner's backing band is such a note-perfect match it could have been made by Cupid. Her gentle songs and lilting melodies are given a lightly bouncing background, perfectly recorded and produced by Verhulst in an organic manner very similar to that of his boss, Gardner. Tadic's tunes range from brightly happy indie pop ("I Am Over Here") to bubbling garage rockers ("Vinny"), swaying ballads that conjure up thoughts of Kendra Smith ("Mirage") and David Lynch soundtracks ("Hum"), and folk-rockers that chime nostalgically ("The Reason"), all featuring sneaky sharp hooks and Tadic's unadorned vocals. Verhulst's bass playing is pretty close to genius throughout, creating little pockets of counter melody that bump the songs up a notch. The drums of Nic Niggebrugge (also in Gardner's band) are solid and guitarist Bram Vervaet knows when to jangle and when to unspool restrained psych-pop lines that snake around Tadic's vocals like vines. It's a very strong debut made by a band that really knows its way around '60s pop, a producer with a light touch, and a songwriter with a knack for simple songs that stick with the listener like glue. It's not flashy and it won't blow people away, but it's the kind of warm and comforting record that rewards repeated listens and time spent getting cozy with the sound and the songs.
