19h30 : ouverture des portes – 20h30 – 21h00 : Maze – 21h30 – … : Whispering Sons
Belgian five-piece Whispering Sons brings a dark and unique blend of experimental and frenetic post-punk. Combining elements of no wave, industrial and avant-punk, the anxious and propulsive instrumentation is relentless and eerily abstracted, whilst vocalist Fenne Kuppens’ words, sung in a dramatic and distinctive low register, inject that extra, central tension.
With their infamously ferocious live shows Whispering Sons has also firmly cemented themselves as a must-see live band.
Over the last years, the band have constantly outstripped their own expectations. With every momentous step forward that they take, they redraw the boundaries of what they consider possible then duly go beyond them yet again.
‘Several Others’ marks Whispering Sons’ first full-length since their 2018 debut ‘Image’. Having retreated to the Ardennes in Belgium during the summer of 2020, the band took the strongest parts of their old work and refined them even further. Where ‘Image’ was theatrical and widescreen, this time around they focused more on their greatest strength – sheer, unpretentious intensity.
MAZE : After their last EP ‘Serve Yourself’, Maze worked behind the scenes on new material. With the arrival of drummer Timo Fannoy they found the ideal line-up for a new sound. Which doesn’t mean they compromised on their live reputation though, an experience that is still perceived as strange, intense or uncomfortable.
