Find Yourself At 'One' With RONDÉ's Irresistible Pop Instincts
Spawned from the coming together of band members with diverse musical backgrounds that range from pop to psychedelia, indie-pop band RONDÉ have been making waves on the Dutch music scene over the past year. A charming blend of irresistibly danceable grooves, rousing pop hooks, emotive lyrical sensitivities and the mature, subtly raspy vocal poise of singer Rikki Borgelt, the five-piece - Rikki Borgelt, Armel Paap, Adriaan Persons, Cas Oomen and Sharon Zarr - made a splash with their first release, 'Run'. With the song being praised as a 'Megahit' by 3FM, they quickly found themselves onstage and being heaped with acclaim at the Eurosonic Noorderslag music conference, and have gone on to grace numerous Dutch festival stages and find themselves playlisted across Dutch radio. Following up with 'We Are One', RONDÉ this year won the 3FM 'Serious Talent' award, and have also received a nomination for the 100% NL Awards as 'Band Of The Year'; and, if that is not enough to confirm their talent, they are set to open for Hozier's upcoming Amsterdam show.
