Belgium band SONS blew us away with their expletive-inducing set at our Iceland Airwaves Music Festival broadcast last month. The Antwerpen-based quartet had already landed the illustrious “De Nieuwe lichting 2018” award from Studio Brussel, and the band had become known for their savage live performances. With their debut LP Family Dinner, the group teamed up with producers Reinhard Vanbergen (Das Pop) and Michael Badger-Taweel (King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard) to perfect their psych-rock sound.

"The four of us are in line with what we want with our music," they said in an interview with The Daily Indie. "You know each other so well, you can feel each other immediately. When we write songs, we only do that if everyone is there. The four of us are in a certain world, a different world, that matches really well. And that is something we already had from the beginning. From the first rehearsal, actually super cliché, it looked like a movie. We started playing together and it worked. From that moment it started and it still feels good."
