Van Common is the solo moniker of Amsterdam’s multi-instrumentalist Sebastiaan van Ravenhorst. As a true hermit, the young man retreated to a small beach house in the southwest of the Netherlands. D.I.Y. was his credo: writing, singing, playing all instruments and recording, everything done by himself. He raided the local supermarket, in order to have enough provisions for a week’s work on his own. ‘I didn’t want to get out of the house anymore,’ he says. ‘I wanted to completely let go of my every day surroundings and focus on writing and recording music for the EP.’ The result is an apt introduction to his mix of dream-pop, shoegaze and glo-fi sounds. Boasting infectious melodies, his songs haunt you like a ghost to take over your mind completely. And that’s Van Common’s intention: to crossover from the subconscious to the conscious.
