Eskina is a unique instrumental band led by guitarist Merel van Hoek from The Hague. In 2018 they reached the quarter-finals of De Grote Prijs van Nederland, where they delighted the audience and the jury with their sensitive and emotional aesthetics that combine the genres of pop and neoclassical music. The hauntingly delicate symphonic compositions and the unique instrumentation conjure up soundscapes that call-to-mind influences from the minimalist Philip Glass to the British alt-rock titans Radiohead. Songs that take you into the world of shady forests and intimate log fires. Their first single "At the End of The Sea" was released in 2017 by the renowned American record label Candyrat Records. Eskina explores the transition from classical to pop by mixing chamber music strings and guitar with evocative electronics. This characteristic combination became the basis of their upcoming album "We Were the Moon", a collaboration with guest artist Maarten Vos, which will be released in October 2021 on Challenge Records.
