Surely, fans of Whispering Sons must range from 7 to 77 years old. For older fans, the five Brussels-based Limburgers offer an update to the heritage of The Cure, Joy Division en Sisters of Mercy. Younger admirers hear something exciting that they can’t quite place, but that fits in well among such foreign contemporaries as Iceage, Fontaines D.C. and Savages. Whispering Sons’ USP is the deep voice of vocalist Fenne Kuppens which intensifies their ominous sound further. The deserving winners of Humo’s Rock Rally 2016 have really made waves. The album ‘Image’ (2019) took them to Dour and Rock Werchter. From there, they went to designer Raf Simons’ Paris fashion show and a European tour in support of Editors. They now know about Whispering Sons in Athens, Berlin and Riga. Export quality for young and old alike.
