Biography

William Zipper (Wouter Zwiep) is an electrorock/glampop artist from The Netherlands. Born in 1991, he arrived just too late to be a part of the decade that inspires him the most. If there is one obvious influence in Zipper’s music; it’s the 80’s. The glam & drama, punchy drums (often layered with retro drum machines), crying guitars and nostalgic keyboards. Zwiep found Zipper locked up in a psych ward deep inside his brain. After 22 years of creeping in the dark, Zipper is ready to show the world what he’s made of; aiming for arena ready songs with elements of electronic as well as conventional rock music. Every song is different, and he isn’t afraid to go out on a limb. He records and produces everything by himself at the moment and is looking for a producer/publisher/label to help him with creating the future. The future is a strange place.

William Zipper is influenced by 80’s pop, religion, Bowie-esque theatrics, unrequited love and a continuing existential crisis. Zipper cites Empire of the Sun, Electric Light Orchestra, David Bowie, The Killers and Glasvegas as major influences.

His first EP: “Revival” was launched on the 20th of July, 2013. His second EP will be released in December 2013, featuring a heavier rock sound.
