What do Belgian bands Kenji Minogue, Vive La Fête, Absynthe Minded and Pink Room have in common? Not a lot at first sight. Unless…
It all started in Ghent (Belgium) back in 2013, as a studio project by songwriter Tom Van Dorpe (Chrome Yellow) and sound wizard/engineer Sergej Van Bouwel (Absynthe Minded).
They pulled out all the stops and lifted their live performances to another level, together with guitarist David Van Glabeke (Kenji Minogue) and drummer David Van Belleghem (Delavega).
Over the years they became a scouring yet atmospheric rock band.
Their style changed in 2018 with the arrival of second keyboard player Maarten De Meyer (Vive La Fête) and drummer Jelle Lefebvre (Pink Room, Celestial Wolves). Guitars are tuned as if they were synths, synths as if they are guitars. Twisted as hell.
Stereoseat proves guitar music is not only relevant in 2020 but can still be innovative too. Over the years, the band has built up a broad fan base with their strong energetic live shows. Their first album 'Safety Car Crash' already dates back to the end of 2015 and all songs were unmistakably Stereoseat.
Now, they’ve upped their game and a second album, ‘Heavenly Creatures’, released by Lacienda Records, will hit the nightlights on february 5, 2020.
The new album includes riffs ‘Millionaire’ forgot to write and choruses ‘QOTSA’ has yet to come up with, and the likes of ‘Porcupine Tree’ and ‘Girls Against Boys’ also arguably filtered through their songwriting proces.
