In the fickle world of pop music, Dutch band Beequeen forms an extraordinary beacon. Their fragile sound dances the fine thread that links experimental and pop music. The result is surreal dream-pop. It is therefore no surprise that Beequeen has been described a band straight out of David Lynch's TV series Twin Peaks. Frans de Waard (laptop) and Freek Kinkelaar (guitar and voice) have been making music together since 1988 as Beequeen. In 2007, singer Olga Wallis was added to the lineup. Her warm and intimate voice is the perfect icing on the cake for Beequeen. Around Midnight was recorded in 2013 and is loosely based on a story about Japanese Enka singer Michi Aoyama, the "runaway singer." Engineered and produced by Peter van Vliet, known for his work with the legendary 1980s Dutch new wave band Mekanik Kommando and, in later years, The Use of Ashes.
