Beequeen - White Bike

from Vital Weekly # 584:

Beequeen is Frans de Waard's long existing duo project with Freek Kinkelaar. 'White Bike' should have been on the upcoming Beequeen album 'Sanddancing', but Freek and Frans decided not to include it on the album and so it was released on Moll, along with the original demo sung by Freek and an excerpt from the recording session with an appearance of Frans' daughter Elise.
These latter tracks add a nice, intimate touch to the release and beautifully match the song itself. It's a wonderful pop song, played on piano and balloons, with vocals sung by Eva Volmeijer.
The melody sticks in your head immediately and its joyous and slightly naïve mode puts a smile on your face, making this a promising candidate for this summer's sweetest tune.
