Graviteen Dream

By our reporter, ANTWERP – “Sometimes a man has to stand up for what he believes in”. It are the words of Dieter Sermeus, singer and leader of indiepop sensation The Go Find.

Disguisted with the “easy and gratuitous” criticism on behalf of the Belgian christiandemocratic and liberal negotiators trying to form a new federal government, Sermous wanted to bring his former band Orange Black back together under a new name: “Orange Blue”. “Out of respect for these hardworking politicians and their parties.”

Unfortunately, Dieter Sermeus’ former bandmembers weren’t too hot for the idea. Or how keyboard player Nico Jacobs puts it: “That guy is nuts and should seriously consider getting his head checked”.

Stood up by his former compatriots, Sermeus started searching new musicians. Which he not coincidently found in the same orange-blue circles he wants to support with this “project”.

This week Orange Blue released its first single “Graviteen Dream”, which appears to be a trance remix and mashup of three songs from the last Orange Black album “Morning Notes”.

“It’s true,” Sermeus admits, “Musical talent, songwriter qualities, being able to play an instrument: it’s all kind of an issue right now. But we’re working on that. We’re planning to release some fresh material, even before the inauguration of our orange-blue government.”

we are very sorry to tell you that we had to kick Yves out of the band > he is always singing the wrong songs.

Maar Dieter! niet echt een strategische zet. Omringd door al die knappe koppen val je helemaal uit de toon… De muziek is er anders wel stukken op vooruit gegaan!
(voor alle duidelijkheid: als Annelies haar studentjes het begrip ironie niet vatten kan dit misschien als hulpinstrument dienen)

I guess from 2:20 is another great version used. Keep up the good work!
