4. Equal Idiots Already since 2012, these two Belgian boys from Hoogstraten City have been teasing many eardrums with their hard garage punk. Winning various major music contests such as De Nieuwe Lichting from Studio Brussel, Equal Idiots released their debut single Salmon Pink in 2016, and have since only been going forward. Their album Eagle Castle BBW came out in 2017 and was met with great acclaim. Trust us when we say you need to watch this Flemish duo.
5. Tamino Born to a Belgian mother and English father, Tamino-Amir Moharam Fouad won the prestigious musical contest De Nieuwe Lichting in 2017, after which he completely sold out the famous AB Club in Brussels. Tamino’s voice - which seemingly effortlessly soars from the low notes to the high – has already resulted in his first EP, of which the singles Habibi and Cigar soared right to the top of the Belgian charts.

6. EUT EUT is a five-piece post-pop band from Amsterdam. The quirky, 90s-inspired group combine catchy pop songs with massive beats and blazing sounds. Recently, the band released their newest single Supplies, and their debut album is set to be released early 2018: expect thick beats and beautiful melodies, and catchy pop songs about youthfulness and maturity.
