“Dutch Criminal Record” are part of the new breed of Indie artists to rise through TikTok and put themselves at the forefront of everyone’s minds and ears. With their blend of 60’s pop vocals, interlinking riffs, and blooming harmonies these South-coast Sunny Indie rockers are for fans of The 1975, The Backseat Lovers, and Sea Girls. Having spent 2022 out on the road with Sea Girls, FUR, at 110 Above and Ynot Festival, as well as their debut headline tour and subsequent November 2022 tour, Dutch Criminal Record are not slowing down! Clearly, the ears of fans have been peaked for many listeners, with over 500k followers on TikTok and a sharp rise in popularity on Spotify.
DCR have been championed across BBC Radio by Steve Lamacq (Radio 6 Music) and Jack Saunders (BBC Radio 1) and across Regional BBC Radio, as well as Clash, Earmilk and Wonderland amongst others. Their sunny, vibrant sounds have garnered Spotify Editorial playlisting slots on New Music Friday, Fresh Finds, Peach, the United States Viral 50 and Hot New Bands. Their debut headline tour in March 2022 and subsequent November saw DCR sell out major cities across the U.K.
There’s something wonderful and wilfully gleeful about 00’s Nostalgia which despite the title rather reminds me of the great jangle-fest which was the mid 80’s” Steve Lamacq, BBC Radio 6 Music
