The Girl Who Cried Wolf from Mechelen, in Belgium, is the melancholic-rock quintet of Heleen Destuyver (Vocals / Keys), Samir Boureghda (Guitar / Keys), Michael-John Joosen (Drums / Vocals / Keys), Sofie Sweygers (Cello / Keys) and Willem Meeus (Bass / Keys).
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the Belgian journalist Sarah Gommers, who will be writing articles from time to time predominately focussed on the Belgian, Netherlands and French scene.
A band with a special name. A name that doesn’t just expose it’s secret, one that sounds mysterious. Does it have anything to do with wolves? Or a crying woman?
Without over-analysing, or trying to discover the why behind the name of their band, it’s easy to feel it fits in a somewhat dark atmosphere, one created to bring us a message.
‘The Girl’, as they call themselves in short, is not a group of friends that went on the play music together. They’re musicians that found each other in their passion for music, and because of that became friends. It’s quick to notice too. Five completely different personalities that somehow fit together perfectly. Even though all five of them are pretty down to earth about the possibilities of the band: growing organically, performing, improving and releasing some CD’s. They want to capture a place in the hearts of their fans.
Thanks Sarah, your contribution is more than welcome and I, along with the readers look forward to discovering more of your introductions.
