Saudade offers an exciting mix of soul, pop and indie rock and borrow its colours from electro as well as jazz. The Brussels band was born when Junior Bokele returned to Belgium after three years in England. Rocked by the London scene, it was in Antwerp that he met bassist Nathan Van Brande and drummer Arthur Lonneux with whom he founded the group, which was later joined by keyboardist Brice Ninck to find its ultimate form. Their first EP Flowers & Dust, released in January 2018, offers a sweet journey through influences such as King Krule or Tame Impala.
