Nikki & The Waves – Shirts

Don’t mistake this band for Canadian band Nikki’s Wives. Nikki & The Waves are a band from Liverpool with a Dutch touch to it. Front woman Nikki Drenthem Soesman was born and raised in Amsterdam. Three years ago, she moved to Liverpool to study at Liverpool Hope University, where she met the other members. The original plan was to take part in the yearly talent show, but they ended up forming a band.

Nikki & The Waves aren’t easy to pigeon-hole, which is a plus in my book. Their influences range from old funk to indie rock and dream pop. By mixing brass with upbeat guitars and melancholic melodies, they manage to create a modern sound that is nostalgic at the same time.

Nikki says about this: β€œLiverpool has a very vivid live scene. This inspired me and the other band members a lot. We’ve all done different studies and listened to different music, but I think all of our individual views created a unique sound.”
