THE leash - OUT NOW!


THIS IS Pocket knife army


Heavily relying on the instrumental and vocal skills of its members, Pocket Knife Army made a niche for themselves where the attack and grit of a rock band meets the drama of modern electronic pop. Eschewing the use of a laptop in favor of analog synthesizers and drum machines, the duo pushes the concept of live electronica to its limit.

Their music is best described as a Russian Matryoshka. The outermost doll looking like a cyborg, half human, half machine, while at heart, the smallest doll would probably more resemble Jeff Buckley. Pocket Knife Army is, all things considered, more about the impact of the songs than anything else. Around that come the layers of intricate arrangements, gritty synths, and Desirée Coumans’ expressive vocal skills.

After their critically acclaimed debut album, the band toured through their home country and started writing songs for the second album ‘Forever Counting Sheep’, which was released on March 8th 2018. The invitation to play during Tallinn Music Week was the starting point of their international career, followed by a tour through Europe.

To keep pushing their skills even further, the band took up the monthly challenge to write, arrange and produce a song each month of 2019, and film an accompanying live session.

More material is scheduled to be released later that year.

Vocals, (Bass)Guitar / Desirée Coumans
Synths, Sampling / Erwin Tuijl
