SOLDOUT – FOREVER (Indie/Disco – Belgium)

Belgian indie electronic duo Soldout is back with a refreshingly eclectic new record, Forever, released last March via Flatcat Recordings. Their 5th studio album includes collaborations with artists like Goose, Maya Postepski (Austra), Victor LeMasne (Housse de Racket), it is mixed by Marta Salogni (FKA Twigs, Dave Gahan, MIA, Frank Ocean), and Bart Demey (The Magician, Hercules and Love Affair).


Their music is a collision between the cold and abrupt universe of electro and the softness of pop melodies. With a resolute contemporary vibe, they bring together the sounds of the 80’s and give them a new twist.

OSCAR & THE WOLF – INFINITY (Indie/Pop – Belgium)

Belgian pop export Oscar and the Wolf returns with the latest single lifted from his brand new album Infinity, out now via PIAS. Produced by Belgian techno wizard One Track Brain, “Runaway” is a grittier, late-night club take on O&TW’s signature indie pop sound, combining seductive vocals and icy-cold minimal beats.

In the past couple of years Oscar & The Wolf, helmed by multimedia artist Max Colombie, have released a string of chart-toppers in Belgium (“So Real”, “Breathing”, “Strange Entity”), rapidly transitioning from undergound blog favourite to household name. After headlining Pukkelpop and being the first live band to play Tomorrowland, they are embarking on a sold out tour which includes two back-to-back dates at Antwerp’s 23,000-capactiy Sportpaleis.

Infinity features 12 tracks oscillating between dark electro and poetic indie pop, most of them written by Colombie at home in Brussels. The new set fuses exquisitely delivered vocals with layers of synths and thumping beats, matching a cinematic quality to an emotive flair. Colombie explains: “I’ve never made such an eclectic collection of songs, and it’s turned out that way because I’ve had kind of a dramatic year. But actually I think drama can be a good thing. […] That’s where the music comes from.”

OSCAR & THE WOLF – BREATHING (Pop – Belgium)

Highly talented Belgian artist and local superstar Oscar & The Wolf has been teasing fans for months with a string of mind-blowing singles (“The Game”, “So Real”) and his latest offering is just as enticing. “Breathing” is a beautifully produced and incredibly sexy summer with bouncy guitars and and an incredibly catchy chorus.

This new tune is taken off Oscar & the Wolf’s sophomore album Infinity, to be released on September 29 via [PIAS].
