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.

Toffe – Riverside

Toffe

Toffe is a 27-year old Swedish artist originally from Kalmar, now based in Stockholm. The multi-instrumentalist writes and produces his own material and since early 2017 has released three singles achieving New Music Friday across all Nordic regions.  Inspired by music legends such as Peter Gabriel, Frank Zappa and Genesis resulting in an eclectic mix of electronica and organic topped with soaring pop melodies.
His talents have also been recognised by film director David Sandberg, contributing to the soundtrack of the highly successful indie movie ‘Kung Fury‘ with additional material on the soon to be released Kung Fury ‘Lost Tapes’ Limited Edition Vinyl.
Toffe takes indie-electro to a place Sweden often swerves. He is set aside from his peers with a full-on assault of beats and soaring vocals reminiscent of Michael Angelakos. With the release of his fourth single ‘Riverside’ approaching and an EP close behind this year is set to be an exciting one for Toffe.

C. Gold – Nobody

C. Gold

C. Gold is the new smashing artist from Sweden that, with his debut single ‘’Nobody feat. Fancy Dave’’, shows that he is here to stay! It’s not very often an artist makes an entrance as strong as C. Golds.

Some artists take years to figure out their sound and style, but listening to ‘’Nobody’’ and seeing the artwork makes C. Gold’s debut crystal clear and easy to love! Worth to know is that he does it all completely independent.

Nobody Feat. Fancy Dave is a groovy electronic pop song with new thinking beats and a lyric that tells the struggle of being a young creator in the most obvious way. When you’re young and working hard to reach your dreams, it can feel like a long way till you’ll see any gold. But listening to C.Gold will guaranteed be the most valuable thing you’ve done in a long time!

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.
