She’s this years Best Urban and Best Solo Female winner at the Belgian Music Industry Awards, she’s headlining major festivals, drawing huge crowds and did we mention her fashion game (courtesy of stylist Kate Housh) has never been more on point? After 10 minutes, Coely makes a final little tug at her sleeveless Christian Wijnants trench dress. She’s ready to talk now. It’s a warm hello, as Coely and Enfnts Terribles are no strangers.
Show To Studio
How are you even sitting here right now? Your summer has been crazy! We’ve seen you everywhere, selling out huge shows, thousands and thousands of people came to your shows all summer long. What’s been your favorite moment this summer?
Oh man, this summer has been so insane. I can’t even begin to describe it. The shows here in Belgium have been incredibly wonderful, the shows in other countries have been wonderful… It’s just all been really, really fantastic. I don’t think I can pinpoint an exact moment, that’s way too difficult! I love when I’m playing for crowds where some people don’t know me or my music, but I can tell halfway during the set they’re getting into it. Afterwards, I’ll get DM’s on Instagram like “Hey, I don’t know you, but your show was cool”. That stuff is fun for me, I love winning over people’s hearts.
Then there are shows where after my first note, because I usually start the show singing acapella from behind the stage, people start screaming. Loud, heavy screaming. Ballistically, really. That’s goosebumps for me. Some shows I can tell the crowd is there to turn-up and then there are shows where the vibe is all relaxed, cozy and breezy. It’s a good mix. I’ve noticed my crowds are very diverse too and that’s just the way I like it, everyone’s welcome! Maybe I kinda have a slight favorite, at Pukkelpop (Belgian festival) I noticed people were gathering outside of the tent. That’s mind-blowing. How did I get these people lining up outside of the damn tent?
