Without a doubt one of the best things about working for Spinnup is discovering artists and bands from all over the world who provide something fun and fresh to listen to. In January we came across a band from The Netherands who did just that – Introducing: Waltzburg.
The six-piece band from Nijmegen (we had to Google map it too), formerly known as Wolves Dressed As Sheep, released their debut track, ‘So Long See Ya‘ last year, but it wasn’t until they dropped their first track on Spinnup, ‘Ghost‘ that they burst onto our radar. From the opening chords and cowbell (more cowbell!) right to the finish, Waltzburg builds a track that is both moody and fun, with gritty, jangly guitars, whimsical backing vocals and quirky melody lines reminiscent of early 2000’s indie, but with a modern uniqueness.
After wrapping up a domestic tour late last year, we’ve heard along the grapevine that the band has been working on new material and have an album in the works for release this year!
‘Ghost’ is without a doubt one of the most infectiously head-nodding releases we’ve come across in a while so it’s safe to say it’ll be spinning in the office for a while to come!
