Antwerp’s act Wardrobe shared cartoon video for debut track “Man Of Straw”

With more emphasis on performance rather than production, Belgian artist Johan Verckist teamed up with Pascal Deweze and their duo have given us nostalgic songs straight from the 1970’s under the name of Wardrobe. Their debut track, “Man Of Straw,” is totally different from what you’ll hear today.

“Man Of Straw” is brewed with patience and a determination to creating the right vibe that listeners can relate to. It is loaded with some idleness that one can be typically found in the indie tracks of artists such as Mac Demarco, for instance. It goes with a cartoon animated video that actually contains footage from Max Fleischer‘s “Dancing on the moon.”

As Johan Verckist, the mastermind behind Wardrobe, detailed:

“Man Of Straw” was the only unfinished song when entering the studio. It’s written in between actual recordingsessions and, like it always seems to happen, it ended on the album. Like all the songs we recorded, it marks a very distinctive period in my life, I guess.

The Antwerp musician is not a newbie on the Belgian music scene. Indeed, he has been a member of different musical projects through the years and the main one was probably Shun Club (with Hans De Prins). His fella Pascal Deweze is famous for being a member of several indie rock bands (Metal Molly, Sukilove, Broken Glass Heroes, Black Cassette…). The album also features the active participation of Sarah Pepels, Pieter Van Buyten, and Noah Melis.

Wardrobe‘s final product is a full album named “Crawling.” It will be released on February 7, 2017 through Fons/Bergerac.
