Dutch Criminal Record
About the band
Dutch Criminal Record is a four piece South Coast Indie band from Chichester, UK. They write and perform their own brand of original upbeat indie tunes featuring melodic vocals, interlinking riffs, and blooming harmonies based around a background of solid bass and nimble drums. In 2014, Dutch Criminal Record released the Dutch Criminal Record EP and a year later they recorded their EP Mirage, which spawned their single “Socks and Sandals”. Whilst gigging frequently along the South Coast and London, DCR won the 2015 Wedgwood Rooms Showcase.
Their June 2016 single, “On the Fence” was featured in Spotify’s “Fresh Finds” playlist. The end of 2016 through 2017 saw DCR record four more singles, each featuring a different band member on the artwork and vocals. Dutch Criminal Record released their brand new single “Waiting on the Weekend" on the 10th of August with an EP of the same name released on August 24th, while celebrating the new release with a slot at Victorious Festival and a sold out EP launch at the Edge of the Wedgewood Rooms.
They have been recognized by BBC 6 Music, having been played by Tom Robinson on his BBC Introducing Mixtape and received considerable airplay on Regional BBC Radio including a live performance from BBC Broadcasting House Brighton.
