10 million views for the music video of 'When the night', 21 million streams on Spotify: our neighbors to walk all hot to the cute musical duo, and now they stand with us at 4 in the Ultratop. And to say that Sue (26) and Freek (25), since the high school together, previously happens to be a musical set. "Freek and I owe everything to the snack bar, where he was in his school worked," explains Suzan. "We were both involved with music, but still had never occurred. To Freeks bazin asked if we as a duo with her wanted to sing. We said 'yes', in which they asked us what the name of them on the poster if. 'Suzan & Freek', we said. Yes, as we are called, hey. (laughs)"Other losses
"this collaboration is very good experience, after which we decided to for the fun of videos online to places where we are hits among the. Those videos were well viewed, but it only really became something when The Chainsmokers our version of their song 'Don't Let Me Down' oppikten and social media sharing. In one fell swoop, we got a lot of extra views. Although we enjoyed it to the songs on the cover, it started getting harder to think for yourself, something to write." That was 'When the night', a sad song about loss. "That feeling of each other are slowly losing, that we wanted to capture in our number. But that such success would have? No, that had a Freek and I can never think. It feels really special, even more so because I, together with Freek should do."
All, the couple is not going to be fast on their laurels to go rest. "We have plenty of new songs to write, because we want to later this year release a cd", it sounds. "Which songs are in the extension of 'When the night', but will not be the same. What, however, remains: we sing in English."
"making Music is, for now, the only thing we want to do. A plan B we have not. Freek and I had, until recently, each still has a job, but that we have denounced. Or that smart? Well, let's hope so," laughs Sue.a Lot of plans
All seem to be the cards that well. In addition to two sold-out clubtours in the Netherlands, Suzan & Freek even though at different festivals occurred. Their appearance at Sziget in Hungary is undoubtedly the most eye-catching. "We had participated in a contest for a spot on the poster to get hold of, and, to our amazement, we won. You must not think that our audience exclusively of Hungarians existed. I think that 90% of our listeners just Dutch people were," says Suzan. "Anyway, it is quite extraordinary to realize that we also have success outside the Netherlands. Later this year there will be several festivals and a tour. And we are also still a few things planned in Belgium. You are not from us. (laughs)"
