The incredible chart success of Dutch band Kensington
With their distinctive style and songs sung in Dutch, it didn’t take long for Kensington to rise to fame in their home country following the release of their debut album. Their first two records, "Borders" (2010) and "Vultures" (2012), were quite successful, with the latter charting at No. 13 on the Dutch album charts. But it would be two years after that that they’d receive their well-deserved breakthrough moment, when their next album, "Rivals", shot to Number One on the charts. It stayed there for several weeks and became double-platinum-certified, thanks to astronomical sales that were driven by the hit singles "Streets" and "War". Anyone who thought it might just be a fluke were soon proven wrong, as their next album, 2016’s "Control", also shot to Number One – cementing their status as one of the greatest Dutch rock bands to have emerged in many years.
