Windup Space are an emo rock band from Oosterhout, The Netherlands. Brothers Menno and Steven van Marle, together with neighborhood friend Jesse Kwaks, envisioned a sound characterized by honest and emotive songwriting to serve as a vulnerable counterpart to modern rock. Taking inspiration from bands like Biffy Clyro, Jimmy Eat World, Black Foxxes, Arcane Roots and Basement, they balance on that sweet spot between alt-rock, emo and atmospheric post rock. This results in energetic, tightly produced rock songs with infectious hooks, but the openness with which they discuss personal themes such as loneliness and mental health is what truly sets them apart. Over the years, Windup Space have cut their teeth in the live circuit, supporting Gender Roles, playing festivals like Misty Fields and Breda Barst, and in 2020 they were selected to be part of the Dutch traveling festival Popronde. 
 Building on their 2019 album Shelter, Windup Space return in 2021 with their new EP 'Endless Sky'. On this four track EP, they explore new sonic territories, which results in their most memorable and focused set of songs to date. On singles Scared Enough and Wide-Eyed, the band further refine their signature blend of alt-rock and emo, while the dark and brooding single The Words showcases their experimental tendencies. All things considered, ‘Endless Sky’ is Windup Space’s testament to breaking free from expectations, exploring new possibilities, and doing what feels right.
