Whispering Sons (BE) / Faunlet (RO)
Feeding on the dynamics of the city, their music unveils feelings of alienation, propelled by an urging and ominous sound. Their live performances feel agitated and uneasy, yet always remain raw and honest. Whispering Sons’ first EP ‘Endless Party’ was released in 2015, followed by two 7 inches in 2016 and 2017.
After winning Humo’s Rock Rally in 2016, one of Belgium’s most prestigious national contests, the band has been touring Belgium and Europe extensively, establishing their strong live reputation. Their debut album ‘Image’ was released on October 19, 2018.
Formed in 2012 in Bucharest, Romania, by Peter (vocals, guitar, synths), Faunlet is a dark emotional band that combines different genres to create a unique sonic and visual landscape.
“It is hard to precisely describe this music style, it’s a complex mixture of goth and shoegaze with depressive lyrics.” Cultartes Magazine
“Gripping and emotional, relentlessly introspective “Anatomy” is lead by hypnotic syncopated drumbeats, interspersed by menacing resounding bell tolls, buzzing, droning synths and piercing twangy
guitar riffs to arise stark and obsessive intensity embodied by sensual and reverent vocals laced with longing, worship and eternal desire.” WhiteLight/WhiteHeat Music Blog
