Backgammon was the 2013 winner of the Dutch Student Band Festival, in 2014 they were elected Best Dutch Newcomer on Dutch national radio and in 2015 they were runner up at the famous Dutch competition ‘de Grote Prijs van Nederland’. For the last year they have toured extensively in The Netherlands, UK and Belgium and were featured on many festivals. Furthermore Backgammon now consists of five band members and that gives them the opportunity to bring the full sound to live performances as well.
Previously released singles Gun In the Yard, Oh Yeah!, Through The Back Of My Head and Strangers did very well in the Dutch Indie Chart and were featured in the Dutch Spotify New Music Friday playlist. Backgammon gave live performances on Dutch national radio, as well as Sofar Sounds sessions for Youtube. They got international airplay from Germany and the UK to the United States.
