Belgian export band Soldier’s Heart has won several prestigious awards and tons of adoring fans in their native land, the five-piece band are taking over the rest of the world with the release of their stellar self-titled EP. The combination of their dreamy aesthetic and absurdly catchy pop songs make them a band you can easily fall in love with this summer. The Belgian dream-pop crew are still shrouded in mystery to us; a fresh-faced band whom we are dying to hear more about. So we thought, what better way to get acquainted with our new favorite band than through their favorite music? Spend your Monday getting to know Soldier’s Heart through ten of their personal fave songs.
Laurens: “Jenny Hval is a real story teller, her lyrics are so good. Her voice is so pure and so weird. When she sings her high notes, I always want to cry—not because I’m sad, but because it feels like such a relief.”
Sylvie: “It was hard to pick a favorite song from her last album; the production sounds so good.
I love the way she tells her stories, it’s very cinematic. She sounds naive, but in a beautiful and powerful way. I’m a big Lana fan!”
Laurens: “The sound of this song is insane, once you know that it was made in 1977. The repetition almost brings you into a trance. And then there’s Alan Vega, the way he spits out his words is really just perfect—he reminds me sometimes of Ian Curtis. If you listen to the production (for example, the effects on his voice), you can see they are forerunners for a lot of contemporary music.”
Benjamin: “It’s a beautiful and coherent mix of studio experiments, psychedelic drones (a year before The Velvet Underground’s debut) and simple songwriting.”

Last time we spoke to Diane Guerrero before we attended the Women’s March on Washington, we talked about feminism and other civil rights issues that mattered to her.
