Line Up 2011


WATERS are quite new to band circus. They just started performing on German festival stages this year. However, frontman Van Pierszalowski isn’t a stranger to the music biz. Until recently, he toured the world with the folky Port O’Brien. With their split, Pierszalowski left folk music behind, and he decided to travel. On a stopover in Oslo, he got himself a few new band members. The sound, which WATERS are cultivating, is also low-fi-oriented, yet with a more of a grungy edge to it. Songs like “For the One”, for instance, are all about the band bringing forth all the distortion effects they could muster without compromising melody-wise. Their debut album, Out in the Light, sees its release on Berlin Festival friday. So you’re definitely in for an exclusive premiere.
