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.

Shaqdi – Colorless

Shaqdi

London-based Scandinavian newcomer Shaqdi is bringing a fresh, soulful sound to R&B that can’t quite be categorised, yet is welcomingly familiar – drawing influences from the American urban scene including artists like Smino, Masego & Xavier Omar.

Growing up in small town in Sweden, music was instilled in Shaqdi at a young age by her mother, who was a classical pianist. She spent her childhood learning both piano and violin from age four, leading her to make a move to Stockholm in her adult life where she studied music at Kulturama as a means to develop her songwriting and production.

It wasn’t until a chance meeting in Barcelona with London producer and filmmaker Zagor where she found new direction. Together the two pushed both her music and creative image to new levels. “I needed time to find my voice and develop my sound. Today I am a strong and proud woman. I know what I’m doing, and I know what I want, and I’m ready to let people in and listen to what I wanna say with my music.” Shaqdi plans to release a number of singles alongside creatively authentic videos filmed with her mates around East London, giving a first hand look into the life and lyrical meaning of who she is. The five track ‘Colorless’ EP is set to be released in full in May.

Esty – Cathartic

Esty

Providence raised, Dominican R&B/soul singer-songwriter and guitarist Esty ​has just released her second record as of earlier this month. She is renowned for her soft angelic tone, addictive melodies and timeless vocal. A vocalist with a vibrant, yet soulful sound Esty has been making her mark on the music scene over the past 4 years. Esty strikes a fine balance with her musical sound, finding the perfect equilibrium between R&B and Soul vocal with her catchy signature melodies. She has drawn comparisons to artists such as Sade, Tracey Chapman and The Weeknd as a high quality vocalist and an artist in her own right. She’s co-written and featured songs for Chris Brown, as well as collaborated on various tracks with Tyga. Through her new EP Cathartic, she has taken a new direction and emerged into a sound described as sophisticated, raw, heartfelt and mesmerizing.

How did it all start?
“I started out printing the lyrics of my favorite songs at the time and learning them so I could perform them at family gatherings. All the kids were put in one room while the adults cooked and hung out in the living room/kitchen. My sisters and cousins were my first audience. I signed up for Providence’s All City Orchestra and played violin and drums at age 12. When I was about 13, I was told by my school counselor that there was a Performing Arts Camp in the summer she thought I would be interested in. It was a ten day camp fully backed by Britney Spears at the time and all I had to do was write a letter explaining why I wanted to be a part of her camp. Only 250 kids were to be chosen for this camp and I ended up being one of them for 3 summers. My life was never the same after that. It solidified for me that this was what I was meant to do. At 16, I bought my first acoustic guitar and wrote my first song. During High School I knew I wanted to go to Berklee College of Music, but my grades weren’t up to par so that didn’t happen. After I graduated H.S. I moved to Los Angeles with $400 and slept on my friend’s couch til I could find a job. At 20 I attended The Musician’s Institute in Hollywood for a little and PA’d for an artist signed to Atlantic Records at the time. Originally, I was auditioning for her band (backup vocals) but ended up being her personal assistant and touring America with her so I got to see the work that went on in the background. In 2014, I self-released an EP called Darkroom which featured Tyga and appeared on the Fan of a Fan album with both Chris brown and Tyga. Later in 2016 by then I had written dozens of songs on guitar and learned to compose/produce music on Logic. The year of 2017 was spent writing and recording the songs for my newly released 8-song project called ‘Cathartic’.”

Which artists inspire you?

“The ones who are unapologetically and passionately themselves. I’m inspired by the artists that wreak of authenticity. Tracy Chapman, Billie Holiday, Al Green, Selena Quintanilla, Sade, Miles Davis to name a few, inspire me. Most recently I’ve been inspired by Moses Sumney.”

How would you describe your sound?
“Soul/Pop/R&B Rhythmic, mellow, ethereal, blissful, bold, lush, mesmerizing, heartfelt, and sophisticated.

It was in the second half of 2015 that all that hard work started to pay off.

Swim Season write remarkably mature pop for a band so new to the industry, they focus on sounds that are bright and fun, combining them with lyrics that are as catchy as they are deliberate. With 5 members coming from 5 diverse musical backgrounds, the band are constantly introducing new ideas, allowing them to see past what a specific genre might dictate and into a space that focuses on one outcome; making great music.

With the new year under way Swim Season are kicking things off with a heap of momentum and with some exciting announcements. Coming in March will be the release of the bands follow up single ‘Gold Cloak City’ and a run of very select dates to coincide with that release.

With all that, sell-out home town shows and even more music up their sleeve for 2016; it’s easy to see why the team is excited for what’s next…
