Hooverphonic has released a new single titled Release Me for the Eurovision 2020 song contest. Release Me continues in Hooverphonic’s recent orchestral sound and it works well on this single. The band has been rotating singers since it’s inception and that trend continues. Noemie Wolfs is no longer with the band and she is replaced with Luka Cruysbergs.
Most of my current musical taste has been sculpted by the music from the legendary Detroit radio show, Big Sonic Heaven – hosted by Darren Revell. That show pioneered a new music movement that celebrated modern ethereal music featuring a variety of dreampop, trip hop, brit pop and more.
