HOT TAKES: Getting to know The Guru Guru

Welcome to the feature; Hot Takes! We chat to a band or artist that we have unearthed as some what of a hidden gem and allow them the chance to introduce themselves to you, the reader.

Q1 – Who is in your band?

Tom The Bomb (Tom), Jeanke Poep (Jan), Milleke (Emiel), Brekke Brexit (Brent), Simons Diamonds (Siemon)

Q2 – What is your take on your own sound?

We feel like our sound is when you bring all of our personal lives together, put it into one body and let that body/creature live our personal lives as one complete lifecycle. That creature is called The Guru Guru.

Q3 – If someone was listening to your music for the first time, what song would you tell them to listen to and why?

The Sun Is Number One. Our last song on our first album PCHEW. It’s the longest song we’ve ever made.

Q4 – What is the plan for 2021?

RELEASING THIS FREAKIN’ DOUBLE EP WUT WUT????!!!!!!! Oh and also TOURING IN THE UK IN AUGUST. Our dates and more are on

Q5 – What is the one song you wish you wrote?

Easy LoverPhilip Bailey, Phil Collins

What a banger! We use it as our outro song at our live gigs and every time we are on tour this song plays every day in the tour van. 

Q6 – What three bands inspired or continue to inspire you the most?


King Gizzard


Q7 – Where can our readers see you live or listen to your music?

Go see our music videos. We released a couple new ones on YouTube.

Freakin’ Spotify! Stream our songs a million times so we can buy some bread and make a poor man’s sandwich.

Q8 – If your band was an animal, what would it be and why?

I think it would be a shark.
We bite! But in the end we’re all just fish in the sea.
