Eefje de Visser has returned. More melodic than ever. More cinematic even. As if she's reanimating the soundtrack of an eighties movie, adding sensual beats to the mix. Lately, the singer-songwriter had been experimenting in her home studio in Ghent, creating electronic music without losing track of her roots. The spirits of her three albums 'De Koek', 'Het Is' and 'Nachtlicht' still haunt her music.

Eefje de Visser plays a delicate balancing act between pop and experimental, between contemporary and nostalgic, between emotion and ecstasy. Fourth album 'Bitterzoet' is the culmination of all that has come before, and more. It sounds like the lovechild of Cat Power, Air and Solange: a combination that proves to be highly popular. 'Bitterzoet' is being lauded by critics all over, with some even claiming that it might be her best record yet. Who are we to deny that?

The 2016 edition of the Cactusfestival already proved that Eefje de Visser is a perfect fit for a weekend in Bruges. So we're glad to be able to invite her back on Saturday July 11th!
