De Staat is a Dutch alternative rock band, formed in Nijmegen in 2006. Their name translates to "The State". In May 2016, the band supported Muse in their Drones World Tour in Portugal, Germany, Belgium, Italy and Spain. De Staat was started as a one-man project by lead singer, Torre Florim, who later brought the band together. Their first demo was recorded in Florim's apartment in 2007
De Staat may be a name new to many, yet in their native Holland their 2009 debut release Wait For Evolution created quite a stir, cracking the Dutch Top 20 and their reputation was enhanced further by some headline-stealing performances at the Pinkpop and Glastonbury festivals, amongst others. Wait For Evolution was 8 years in the making, and was created on a laptop with two microphones and one guitar. With Machinery, main man Torre Florim has grasped the ideas laid down on the debut and taken them much, much further to create his perfect vision of De Staat. Possibly the best song on the album would be I’ll Never Marry You with its deceptively upbeat tempo that comes across as a sort of twisted REM track with a huge slab of Masters Of Reality for good measure. Given the right exposure, this may just have enough to give De Staat a bit of a hit.

Very underrated band. There is also very little reverb on most of the songs giving it a dry, hot atmosphere. Giving this album a first listen, My first impression was that this is the type of album that's quirky, and experimental without being overblown or pretentious. Everything instrument, every melody, and every nuance, fits the music as a whole very well. This is especially true for the horror-film worthy dissonance of "Keep Me Home".

It's always strange when music makes you imagine a certain object or place in your mind, when it reminds you of a time, or a place, or an object so strongly it's like it was yesterday. This is something that Dutch alternative rockers have managed to capture very well with their latest offering, Machinery.
