The Fire Harvest

the Fire Harvest

Jacco van Elst, Nicolai Adolfs and brothers Gerben and Gibson Houwer are The Fire Harvest. What started out as Gerben’s solo project has evolved into the current, close-knit band. Each member is an experienced musician – devoted to making this deeply melancholic music, while at the same time having lots of fun together. This is actually a story about four Dutch blokes with different personalities who have known each other for fifteen years, and what results if they come together each week: music somewhere between slowcore, country-noir and post-rock. What comes out are sober, gloomy and at times haunting songs with tormented singing, reminiscent of the likes of Palace Brothers, Idaho and Low.
