Coca-Cola Sessions: Newmoon + Whispering Sons

Facebook event Share Tweet

Dark double-bill full of exciting, ominous rock ’n roll!

NEWMOON

Before the fans of effeminate leeches totally lose it, their name comes from Elliott Smith’s posthumous compilation album of the same album from’07. The fans of post-punk, shoegaze, dream-pop and every genre in-between can now go wild though, because what Antwerp/Ghent’s Newmoon squeezes from the fenders on first issue ‘Space’ is something to get very worked up about.

Think Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, Joy Division, The Jesus And Mary Chain and Dinosaur Jr. with a big fat DIY-attitude (the members formed hardcore/punk band Midnight Souls in a previous life). “They all play Fenders. They all have matching tattoos. They party harder than most.” Welcome home guys!

WHISPERING SONS

These charred laureates of the latest Humo’s Rock Rally drag us back to the dark musical caverns of the eighties. Their menacing cold/new wave, post-punk and shoegaze is of course indebted to the flagbearers of the day but it is the ominous baritone of frontlady Fenne Kuppens that provides Whispering Sons with that little bit more. And it’s the songs, of course, on EP ‘Endless Party’ via Belgian cassette-label Wool-E Tapes (vinyl re-issue via Minimal Maximal for the fans!) that get the adrenaline in your body boiling with pleasure!

Très très chouette concert des Whispering sons ! Revival 80's assuré. Par contre, très déçu par la performance de Newmoon. Voix presque inaudibles par rapport à la musique très (trop?) forte. Mauvais réglage des micros ???
