Over the course of their 25-year career, Hooverphonic developed an instantly recognizable sound, somewhere between trip-hop and pop. From day 1, Alex Callier (producer/songwriter) & Raymond Geerts (guitar player) have formed the core of the band and over the years, they have worked with a variety of singers. Since 2018, Luka Cruysberghs is Hooverphonic’s singer. In 2017 she won The Voice of Flanders, with Alex as her coach.
Hooverphonic’s sound has seen an evolution from the earlier albums A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular and The Magnificent Tree to the recent (gold) album Looking For Stars. Songs like With Orchestra and In Wonderland show that Hooverphonic succeeds in sounding fresh time and time again, without sacrificing the identity of the band or the connection with their fans.
Singles Mad About You, Badaboum, 2 Wicky, Romantic and Eden were international successes and form the basis of the band’s live set. Hooverphonic has toured the United States and Europe multiple times, both on their own and with artists like Moloko and Massive Attack. Recently, the band performed in Japan, representing Belgium at the Belgian Beer Weekend. And in October 2019, they will set off on an extensive European tour.
