NewWaves – In The Clouds

NewWaves are an Alternative rock band, founded in the fall of 2015, from Stockholm, Sweden. Tim Sundström (guitar, backing vocals), Christoffer Bellonius (guitar), Erik Johansson (drum set, percussion) and our new vocalist (since a week ago) Ejnar Örjes.
NewWaves make alternative rock with influences from pop, punk and electronica. Everything started when Tim Sundström had been on a tour with his last band, full of inspiration and commitment to music. Heavily influenced by Imagine Dragons he wanted to make something of his own.
The reason why they are doing this is because they love making and performing music, but more than that, they want to be able to provide value to other people through their music. NewWaves want to be able to make people feel like they are enjoying the moment, despite what problems or difficulties they may have. They want to be able to make people of all different ethnicities, financial and cultural backgrounds feel relief and enjoyment, if only for just a moment, in a world that is full of stress and problems.”
They released a single named “Experience” in 2016 with a music video as well as an EP called “The Things We Do” in 2017. In the process of releasing the EP we released a single called “In The Clouds” and a music Video for that song.
“Right now we’re in the process of writing new music and teaching everything to our new vocalist Ejnar, getting him completely comfortable and happy in the band. We are planning our future and brainstorming ideas on what to do next”.
We are planning on having a photoshoot with the new line-up to present Ejnar to the world. We are also planning to record new songs in the near future, which will be awesome. We will soon be booking new shows to play.
