During the summer of 2018, songwriters Quintus Drop and Troy Mackenbach recorded a number of demos. In multiple recording sessions with producer Niels van der Lans, a range of different musical influences were combined into a new sound called THARE. During the past year, the duo recorded an EP with new material. The music expresses a layered mix of electronic pop, hip hop beats and atmospheric synthesizers. The melodies tend to be mysterious and looming, where compelling vocals and seductive hooks provide enough room for an underlying message.
