Stillwave was formed by Michaël van Putten, Marcel Jongejan and Adriaan Hogervorst in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Their sound is a mix of alternative, new wave, post-punk and shoegaze. Stillwave creates an innovative mix of guitars drenched in reverb, characteristic vocals and powerful drums, combined with electronics and synthesizers. They have played over 50 shows at renowned venues. With their live shows they quickly found an audience that shares in their experience of letting go of so many things that matter so little in order to grab a hold of the few things that matter so much.
