This concert moves from the AB Box to the Main Hall to satisfy on the demand for tickets.
Belgians with a nose for stunning pop music close a successful chapter in their career in the AB.
Intergalactic Lovers will play their only end-of-year club show with a concert in the AB on Friday 2 December and in doing so they conclude an unbelievably successful period. Their debut ‘Greetings & Salutations’ received unanimous high praise from both press and public earlier this year and the singles ‘Delay’ and ‘Shewolf’ were both radio hits. Their mix of melodious - sometimes intimate other times adventurous - pop music, together with the unique voice of singer Lara Chedraoui, enchants both young and old. That would explain why the version of ‘Delay’ that they recorded for Studio Brussel has already been viewed more than 200,000 times on YouTube. As a result, their concert diary has also been coloured red with visits to festivals like Les Nuits Botanique, Cactus, Dour, Boomtown and Leffingeleuren. What's more, the band was also assigned to writing the soundtrack for a long-play film based on the popular TV-series Code 37.
‘The seven lean years in Flemish rock are not in sight’. (HUMO 3½ *)
Intergalactic Lovers is the musical playground of Lara Chedraoui (vocals), Brendan Corbey (drums), Maarten Huygens (guitar) and Raf De Mey (bass). The four-member company has diverse tastes, ages and roots: ranging from Lebanon and The Netherlands to Namen and Impe. The practical meeting point between all these places is Aalst, where the band rehearses.
One of the discoveries of the Reeperbahn showcase festival in Hamburg in September 2010 was undoubtedly Hundreds. This German brother-and-sister duo blew the audience away with their blend of The Knife and Eurythmics. Eva and Phillip Milner describe themselves as a cross-pollination between the icy aesthetics of Raster-Noton and the warm melancholy of Low. A voice, a piano and minimal beats: a match made in heaven.
