New Band of the Day - The Narcoleptic Dancers


Share This Article:

The Narcoleptic Dancers

From:  Holland and France

Members:  Anton Louis Jr and Melody Van Kappers

Background: Everything about the Narcoleptic Dancers is 'cute'. Get a load of their back-story for instance. Half siblings Anton Louis Jr and Melody’s lank haired father Johnny Van Kappers apparently was a famous Dutch footballer. Known for his lank and extremely long hair, it gained him the title of 'the Narcoleptic Dancer'. Eventually the pair decided to form The Narcoleptic Dancers at their father’s funeral and they even grew hair to match.

With a new Slow Club album out this month, fans of the Sheffield duo might get as equally as excited about their European cousins. They’re just about as sincere if not more so.

‘Soft and Sweet’ and ‘Bakerloo’ are both twee overloads whilst ‘Not Evident’ is reminiscent of Slow Club’s catchier moments.

Their debut album Never Sleep is a wonderful mix of the above and should have all you twee lovers swooning for the time being.
