Our story

NQVST is an alternative punk band currently based in Amsterdam but has its origins in Scandinavia. Annabell Bjelland originally started writing lyrics and short melodies during her studies at the University of Oslo, with no intention of ever sharing them with anyone. As fate would have it, it wasn't until a friend of a friend told Annabell that Kurt Sparks and Bernard Dayes were looking for a vocalist to expand their two-man sax-bass duo into what later become NQVST. Kurt and Bernard were impressed by the lyrical prowness of Bjelland and soon the trio was self-producing singles that would eventually become their first studio album, Centerfold.
