Sounds | Haze, Fool The World


Met de deur in huis vallen: ik ben geen fan van het zacht-zalvende stemgeluid van Mirabelle Van de Put, voilà. Neemt niet weg dat het nummer op zich me wel kan bekoren. Van de diepe bastonen over de galmende gitaartot de laidback drumbeats, het low-fi/alt-americana sfeertje, de prachtige video (opgenomen in het kasteeldomein De Varens, Melle), het zit allemaal sterk in elkaar en boeit van de eerste tot de laatste noot.

After a lifetime of playing bass and singing backing vocals in bands of all kinds like Nightwitches, Barbie Bangkok, Buffoon, Louie Louie, Crites, ERIIS, Mirabelle decided to step out of her comfort zone and try something new ... on her own.


2020 began with the objective to start a band, record and play shows. But, the pandemic made that dream nearly impossible. Instead of waiting for the world to return to normal, she got to work. The first lockdown imposed sudden free time which was exactly what she needed to create, no strings attached. HAZE was born.


Everything was recorded at home, alone in her room, except for a couple guitar parts which was expertly done by the talents of Miguel Moors.


The honestly and fragility reflected in the music is reminiscent of PJ Harvey and Mazzy Star. Soothing vocals, edgy guitars, and laid back drum beats set the tone for this self-titled debut album.
