My most listened album for 2022 is from a Belgian band out of Aalst. According to the Apple Music Replay feature I played this album 28 times in 2022.
Maybe you already guessed that I am referring to a band called 'Intergalactic Lovers'. The band has 4 members, Lara Chedraoui - Brendan Corbey - Maarten Huygens - Raf De Mey. I also enjoyed Lara, the singer as actress in the TV series 'Lost Luggage'. She plays a policewoman that has to return luggage to the relatives of an attack at Brussels Airport. This recent album comes after a 4 year hiatus due to personal setbacks and COVID 19. For me it was my first introduction to the the band. I also didn't know they already made 3 albums before this one. Personally I really like that the electronics are given a more prominent role in their music. In my humble opinion Intergalactic Lovers certainly does not make your average pop songs. The voice of Lara Chedraoui is the band's strongest asset. This album keeps getting better by more listening, hence the 28 times 😀
Give it a listen, you won't regret it.
