Burgeoning Dutch alt-rockers GUNMOLL enchant their striking brand of rock with the temptation, danger and magnetism of the most blood-curdling crime novels. The band started by Jolien Grunberg (vocals/guitars) and Bram Bol (guitars/production) paints stories of romance, betrayal, surging adrenaline and anthemic tension, partly anchored in Jolien’s Romanian roots.

“You can draw from that type of concept as far and as vividly as possible, almost like a cult movie.” explains Jolien.

Drawing from her own background, the first sketches of GUNMOLL’s neo noir-tinged rock started to manifest. To summon GUNMOLL into existence, Jolien contacted Bram, with whom she had already developed a good connection with a previous project. Their dynamic chemistry bursts at the seams as Bram and Jolien fleshed out their first songs as GUNMOLL: a groove-laden catchy rock sound, jam-packed with surprising elements; feral rock & roll riffs, oriental melodies and sweeping surf rock.

Within this adventurous sound palette, GUNMOLL exults in larger-than-life character sketches from different phases of life: the girl who stumbles upon her father’s gun, the fork-tongued temptress acting out her revenge fantasy, the mother who protects her daughter from the harsh outside world. For all intents and purposes, GUNMOLL is a sexy, rousing, cold-blooded and mysterious operation, exposing audiences to a brooding, primitive energy; the sheer thrill of a surfer swerving on a wave of untamed currents.

Combine GUNMOLL’s vivid tales of danger and deceit with blistering riffs and arrangements, and you get a band with a very particular moxie. “GUNMOLL represents a blend of danger and personal experiences, resulting in an explosive energy,” adds Bram. “We are more than a concept band; our music reflects our identities. GUNMOLL is very close to us.”

With Pim de Roij (drums) and Koen van Bemmelen (bass) rounding out GUNMOLL’s fiery rhythm section, GUNMOLL is ready to burn some serious rubber and hit the road. Jolien: “GUNMOLL has to remain rooted in personal experiences. There is some kind of temper, a rage and a pain within me, there is history within me. From my family, and from different sources of inspiration. All of that resonates through this music.”
