Sólin is experimental and melodic pop based in Utrecht. Through their love for Scandinavian music they combine dreamy, pure melodies with profound rhythmic layers and wide, extensive soundscapes. This complexity within pop music, together with improvisation flowing from intelligent arrangements nurtures an expressive live show that reaches a deeper level.
Sjoerd de Roij (bass), Mees Siderius (drums) and Roosmarijn Tuenter (viola, vocals) met each other at the Utrecht Conservatory. In late 2015, after several musical encounters in a number of projects, they formed a band. They already look back on a diverse list of shows in among others Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, Bimhuis and TivoliVredenburg.
"[Sólin plays] very good arrangements with many surprising twists and original sounds. The songs are at the same time fragile and confident, and in this paradox very honest and stubborn."

"Within no time at all you'll find yourself in another world, where folk and pop together form a new genre."
