Ştiu Nu Ştiu started in the autumn l of 2012, when Kalle Mattsson moved back to Stockholm city as his former Caterpillar Ghost band mate, Martin Sandström, after almost a full decade in Amsterdam. They both grew up in Uppsala just north of Stockholm and the first four members were all from there but by the time this band started they all lived in Stockholm.
Sandström had spent his time making albums and touring Europe as guitarist and co-songwriter in so called postrock band Jeniferever. Mattsson had spent his time making artworks for record covers and playing bass with various bands in the Amsterdam scene.
In 2022 the line- up has gone through many changes but Kalle and Martin remain. The fourth album is finally ready to be released.
Beauty and ugliness need to co-exist. Melodies need to be destroyed by distorted mayhem. Melodies need noise, and noise needs to give way to structure and focus.
