The Haunted Youth
ESNS: 2022
The Haunted Youth is the band of Hasselt-based Joachim Liebens (27), playing mesmerizing psych pop reminiscent of MGMT, DIIV, Slowdive or The Cure. The songs – about despair, hope, and the feeling of being a misunderstood misfit – are coated in a rich and dreamy international sound. Debut single ‘Teen Rebel’ certainly hit the mark: they won Studio Brussel’s talent contest De Nieuwe Lichting, getting a lot of airplay in Belgium and abroad. Follow-up 'Coming Home' was picked up by NME and as 'Song of the Day' on KEXP.
