Whispering Sons + Fornet
A large number of Belgian bands had their big break by winning HUMO’s Rock Rally, one of which is Brussel post-punk band Whispering Sons. Officially the band has been around since 2013 and they started releasing music in 2015 (the EP “Endless Party”). Debut album “Image” came out in October 2018 and 2019 seems to be the year of their definitive break-through.
Whispering Sons’ dark sound oozes with desperation and anxiety, resulting in an ominous atmosphere. Their strongest weapon is the terrific deep voice of front woman Fenne Kuppens which give every song an intriguing darkness. The band has been playing all across Europe at all kinds of festivals and went on tour with bands like The Soft Moon and Gang Of Four. Recommended to fans of bands like Savages, Preoccupations and The Cure.
Belgian five-piece Fornet is the support act tonight with their eccentric post-punk.
