Indie pop duo Ciao Lucifer has decided it’s time to accept their manhood in their new music. High school friends Marnix Dorrestein and Willem Wits sing “It’s too late to die young”, but if they’re going to grow up, they want to do it in their way. “Our biggest fear is becoming Don Draper,” says Marnix, “we want to learn to talk openly about our emotions, dreams and needs.” In their new songs, they describe the kind of grown-ups they want to become. Strong and vulnerable, compassionate and independent, reliable and adventurous.
Ciao Lucifer creates cheerful and energetic songs. But when listening closely, you will hear how they have woven their demons into their songs. Marnix explains: “We don’t feel too cool to be a ‘feel good band’, but actually we sing about very personal things. If the end result is that we make people happy and can make them dance, it’s mission accomplished.”
Perfect for the fans of Mika, Beck, Ween, GUYY and Fuzzy Teeth.
