Black Horse Society formed in early 2013 in the port city of Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The roots of this brand-new indieband started in “Coolhaven”, an area nestled between the hectic rhythms of the modern city and the more peaceful, sedate Maas area. This contrast is reflected in the sound and feeling of the debut EP, “Columbo” – whether in de pulsing beats of the title song, or the atmospheric, epic Eyes On The Prize – to the intoxicating sadness of Art Collector, which marks the high-point of this strong debut-EP.
Singer/guitarist Reinier Gerritsen: “Black Horse Society’s music is tied to the the city where we live, that’s true. The songs jump between epic and small, but the overall sound remains unmistakably big and full. A lot of our music is created spontaneously- there’s never a concrete plan. That creative moment, the excitement and the feeling that something new is being created, that’s what drives us.”
