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 two years, the band have constantly outstripped their own expectations. With every momentous step forward that they take, they redraw the boundaries of what they consi der 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 during the summer, 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.
