Five New Belgian Acts That Will Blow Your Mind in 2020

Did you promise yourself to listen to good music in 2020, so your Spotify Wrapped looks ‘edgy’? Well, we’ve got your back as we’re highlighting five Belgian acts that will blow your mind in 2020 with their music. These upcoming acts have everything in them to become major acts in the next twelve months, and we already love what they’re doing. Let’s introduce them to you!

1. MEYY

She’s only nineteen, but we expect MEYY to become a real sensation. The lo-fi pop of Charlotte Meyntjens sounds dark, melancholic and absolutely captivates us the second we hear the fragile and angelic voice of Charlotte. Her first single “Angelic Lies” was one of our favorite debuts of the year and has an amazing video that’s been realized by Stig De Block. Since her debut-EP is coming this month, MEYY will be heading on tour with IKRAAAN and Chibi Ichigo through Belgian clubs, where she’ll be showcasing her talent. Let the EP come!

2. Promis3

We’re certain that our frequent readers already read an article about Promis3, because we fell in love with the electro pop duo in 2019. We’ve put their first single “Losing Our Connection” on repeat for days and it was a debut many artists will be jealous of. Not much later, their first EP Like Trying to Land on a Cloud came out and proved that they aren’t one-trick ponies. Singer Brent Dielen and producer Andras Vleminkx have big plans for 2020 with more new music and a tour with their good friend Emma Bale, who has been working on her big comeback. Promis3s to be a good year. (See what we did there)

3. Lous and The Yakuza

Belgium is known for fries, chocolate and Stromae, but we’re sure that Lous and The Yakuza will be added to this list after this year. The 23-year-old singer always dreamed of having a career in music, and it’s officially happening. Her debut album is one of the most anticipated debuts of the year, because her first two songs “Dilemme” and “Tout est gore” are so incredibly good. With the help op Rosalia’s producer El Guincho and her strong songwriting, this can only result in a successful year. Her first shows have sold out and the first confirmations for the summer festivals came in. It’s going to be Lous’ year!

4. Larssen.

Inspired by Sohn, Radiohead and Jon Hopkins, Sasja Maekelberg makes music that is unique and extremely catchy. Under his moniker Larssen., the Ghent-based artist is steadfastly working on tracks with his band. Based on the first two releases, we can label the music as a symbiosis of alternative electro pop and indie. The sound of Larssen. is modern, fresh and has a slight touch of mystery, which elevates the songs and make it stand out even more. It would surprise us if this project doesn’t take off, because Larssen. has everything to become a highly praised act in the music industry.

5. IKRAAAN

Sixteen minutes. That’s how long IKRAAAN hypnotized us with her haunting first EP HAPPY PILL, that came out in September. Even though her songs are in Dutch, you feel the pain that inspired her music. In a way, IKRAAAN reminds us of FKA Twigs, who’s obviously one of her biggest heroes. Together with MEYY and Chibi Ichigo, she’s doing four intimate club shows where she’ll blow everyone away with her out-of-this-world songs. Once you’ve heard her songs, you will never forget her.
