New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Brussels based Post-Punk outfit Whispering Sons release their long awaited debut album 'Image'. The record, produced by Micha Volders and mixed by Bert Libeert, is their first major release since their EP 'Endless Party' in 2015.

'Image' takes a giant leap forward from Whispering Sons' previous work. Together with producer Micha Volders (Meteor Musik, El Guapo Stuntteam and overall synthesizer wizard) and engineer/co-producer Bert Vliegen (Teen Creeps, Sophia), the band used the studio as a means to broaden their sound, enriching it with acoustic drums and a whole range of synthesizers. The ten tracks, recorded over a period of ten days at GAM Studios in Waimes (BE), evoke an atmosphere both ominous and urging, yet at the same time capture the band's agitated live intensity. The record was mixed by Bert Libeert (Goose, B) at Jetson Studio and mastered by Frederik Dejongh at Jerboa Mastering.

The songs on the album were written after the band collectively moved to Brussels in 2016. In between periods of intense touring, they worked hard to translate their new perspectives into their first full album. Feeding on the dynamics of the city, the tracks unveil feelings of alienation and distance. 'Image' is a motionless state, in which observations overshadow actions. It reflects the artificiality of things, yet still desperately clings on to ideals and obsessions, something which is also strengthened by the cover artwork of Flor Maesen.


Prior to 'Image', Whispering Sons had released the EP 'Endless Party' (2015, Wool-E Tapes; 2016, Minimal Maximal) and the 7 inches 'Performance/Strange Identities' (2016) and 'White Noise' (2017) (Weyrd Son Records). In 2016, the band won Humo's Rock Rally, one of Belgium's most prestigious national contests that boosted the career of upcoming artists such as dEUS, halfway through the nineties. After that, Whispering Sons have been touring Belgium and Europe extensively, establishing a strong live reputation.
The album is out now and the band are also about to embark on their first UK tour in March and you can find out where just below.
