The straits

Two bands are known as The Straits, one from The Netherlands the other from UK. 1. The Straits is a band from the Netherlands and got together in june 2005 and that was about time! Most of the Straits already knew each other and it was a twist of fate that got them to meet Patrik Muller and Wilko Stroo. The Straits intentions are not to create a new genre in music but to find the perfect popsong and present it to the world! Oasis, The Beatles and The Stone Roses preceded us. The Straits are bound by the chemistry to find a certain energy and a smile in their songs.
