KLANGSTOF from the Netherlands places itself between freshly laced dance shoes and big emotions. Atmospheric sounds meet electronic passages and lose themselves in an enveloping trance of modern pop and benevolent calm. Koen van de Wardt, the mastermind behind KLANGSTOF, grew up in a rural area and taught himself most of his musical knowledge self-taught before joining his former band MOSS and subsequently taking off with KLANGSTOF. The 2016 debut is already convincing all across the board and the Dutchmen deserve the honour of being the first Dutch band to play the Coachella Festival. Fascinatingly, the band continues their sound corset on the follow-up record and will finally be back in Germany, to enchant the audience live, in 2022.
