    Close Eyes to Exit
Amsterdam-based alternative act Klangstof was founded by Dutch/Norwegian musician Koen van de Wardt. The band first established itself with their debut LP, Closed Eyes To Exit, a majestic confluence of synth-pop, post-rock, and electronic music.
Ever since, the band has swiftly risen the ranks as one of the most promising European exports, becoming the first Dutch band to perform at both Coachella and Bonnaroo. After touring with MIIKE SNOW, Jagwar Ma and The Flaming Lips, Klangstof shed several line-up changes. The EP Everest stretched the band's dynamics even further, relishing in wayward experimentalism with synths and flirtations with big pop hooks.
Forthcoming second album The Noise You Make Is Silent finds Klangstof – now the trio of Van de Wardt, Wannes Salomé and Erik Buschmann – putting their versatility and impulsiveness on full display. The writing sessions often had more in common with wacky science fair projects than all-out jams, with all band members circling a grid of effect pedals, laptops, and drum machines, exhuming and harvesting an abundance of unusual sounds.
That very objective has also spilled over on stage, where Klangstof earned a rep as a dynamic live unit that pushes the songs to impulsive new directions at every opportunity, boldly chasing the possibilities of collaboration instead of thinking in beginnings and destinations.
