The journey of The Hengles
A new year, a new song! Down To The Water, The Hengles’ 6th consecutive single, takes you on a sonic trip to uncharted musical landscapes. Starting from scratch, adding layer after layer as the music progresses, eventually leading the listener to a blissful serenity.
The distinguished gentlemen of The Hengles have more than earned their musical spurs in the past. The guys from Amsterdam played in illustrious 80s and 90s bands like Fatal Flowers, Treble Spankers, Supersub and Jack Of Hearts. Since 2015 they represent The Hengles, originally specialized in the better cover stuff and in addition active as backing band both live and in the studio of various artists.
Last year The Hengles have taken the next step: writing their own repertoire making pure melodic jingle-jangle Hengle pop with a twist, taking you on a trip down memory lane of more than 50 years of popular music history and blending this into their own style.
As said before, 2019 has been very kind to The Hengles: entries on
Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, Apple Music’s New Music Daily playlist, Dutch National Radio NPO 5 playlist and a real Number 1 spot at Dutch IndieXL Indie chart, airplay in Germany, US and The Phillippines, to name but a few!
This new year, The Hengles will continue their quest to bring you more music, more music, more music. More music to your ears! So, follow The Hengles, go Down To The Water and spin it around!
Down To The Water is out now!
