Vondelpark - NYC Stuff and NYC Bags (2011)

“There is a new sort of sound in music,” Lewis Rainsbury argues, “where it’s a little more humble and personal. It’s emotive music: I don’t think the songwriting itself is similar at all, but the approach to songwriting… There are links there, certainly.”

Pressed to define their own sound, Rainsbury struggles: it’s a collection of ideas, he offers; a collage of influences. He isn’t alone in saying so: various writers have cited reference points from Portishead through to The Cure, whilst for this hack it’s early Bonobo and various Ninja Tune releases. But Vondelpark aren’t setting out to sound like anyone in particular, says Rainsbury, although he acknowledges Dinosaur Jr, New Order and jazz guitar music generally as helping to form their sound. He insists, though, that songwriting is a collaborative affair, contrary to persistent allusions to the project being a solitary thing.
