Marble Waves is an Amsterdam based folk band whose style is heavily influenced by Americana, indie, and pop. Their music is known for its poetic lyrics, multiple vocals, and ethereal guitar work. As well as plugged performances, the band does full acoustic living room gigs.
The folkband consists of singer/songwriter Eveline Armina Haverlag, guitarists Frank Geerlings and Merel van ‘t Hooft, bass player Amé Staal and drummer Rutger Louwerse.
In 2019, Marble Waves played one of Utrecht’s Tivoli Vredenburg stages and performed for several local public broadcasters. Marble Waves were scheduled to play one of the Tivoli stages once again in February 2020, during the Best of 2019 Weekend, but due to the outbreak of the coronavirus the festival was replaced by a livestream.
‘Through the Dark’, the band’s first single, was released on 17th April 2020, followed soon after by the second single ‘Extraordinary’. Marble Waves’ self-titled debut EP, consisting of 6 songs, was released on November 27th 2020.
The music video of Tipsy, one of the songs featuring on the EP, was released on March 5, 2021. The video is about “huidhonger”, a Dutch expression often used since Corona-crisis. Huidhonger translates literally in “hunger of the skin” and means a craving to be touched by another human being.
