"Shine 'em up Sadie" by Douglas Firs
Van Hellemont traveled in Canada and the US last fall, working on songs for a new album. Our first taste of his new efforts is "Shine 'em up Sadie", inspired the story of an Italian immigrant family in New York in the 1920s. The song finds Douglas Firs in an upbeat, pop mode, and it is a good sound for them.
In addition to Gertjan Van Hellemont, Douglas Firs are Sem van Hellemont, Simon Casier, Senne Guns, and Lokko. The new album will be released this Fall via Dutch label Excelsior Recordings.
