Intergalactic Lovers are Belgians with a nose for stunning pop music. Their debut ‘Greetings & Salutations’ received unanimous high praise from both press and public and the singles ‘Fade Away‘, ‘Delay’, ‘Shewolf’ and ‘Howl’ were all radio hits. The album was recorded at the Easy Life Chart Hits studio’s in Stuttgart with producer Thomas Hahn. The recordings were mixed by Ian Clement (Wallace Vanborn) en Maarten Heynderickx and finally mastered at the famous Abbey Road studio’s in Londen by Steve Rooke.
Their mix of melodious – sometimes intimate other times adventurous – pop music, together with the unique voice of singer Lara Chedraoui, enchants both young and old. That would explain why the version of ‘Delay’ that they recorded for Studio Brussel has already been viewed more than 400,000 times on YouTube. As a result, their concert diary has also been coloured red with visits to festivals like Les Nuits Botanique, Cactus, Dour, Boomtown and Leffingeleuren. What’s more, the band was also assigned to writing the soundtrack for a long-play film based on the popular TV-series Code 37.
In 2011, the band won the Belgian award for the best breakthrough of the year.
Intergalactic Lovers is the musical playground of Lara Chedraoui (vocals), Brendan Corbey (drums, plays Paiste Cymbals), Maarten Huygens (guitar) and Raf De Mey (bass). The four-member company has diverse tastes, ages and roots: ranging from Lebanon and The Netherlands to Namen and Impe. The practical meeting point between all these places is Aalst, where the band rehearses.
