As an artist in residence, Fortress can often be found in Trix. The venue has recently called them "the hardest working band in town" and they are only too happy to prove it with their cinematic concert film, which will be released on July 2. The film is directed by Tijs Torfs (the brother of singer Hanne) who has already won several international prizes with his compelling documentary 'Bertha en de Wolfram' and the poetic short film 'Graven'. The DOP for this film is Dries Vanderaerden, always going for the most mesmerizing shots. Talented dancers Pieter Desmet (Ultima Vez) and Martha Gardner will also be featured in the film.
The outfit that Hanne will wear in the concert film was specially designed for her by Camilla Ardui. This Antwerp-based visual artist has been a hit before with her collage work and shows herself to be a rock-solid fashion designer for Fortress as well.
Expect an ingenious light show, virtuoso dancers and musicians overflowing with love for their craft. This innovative concert film is a must-see and will be broadcasted on July 2 on this webpage and live in Trix.
The Belgian-Dutch synthpop trio Fortress makes atmospheric electronic popmusic that is carried by the unique and dreamy voice of Hanne Torfs. Together with Dutch producer Ruben den Brok, Torfs has developed a unique and sultry sound, which is backed by the electrifying bass synths of Nils Tijtgat (Team William, Protection Patrol Pinkerton). Alluring, yet bold and danceable.
‘Wanderlust’, their first single released in 2018, has already drawn attention from both Studio Brussel and Radio 1. At the moment, Fortress is working on their debut EP which is expected next year. In the months leading up to their forthcoming EP, the band will be releasing several singles of which Moonchild is the next one. On July 2, the band will release a cinematographic concert movie, directed bij award-winning Tijs Torfs.
For fans of adventurous electronic acts like The Knife, Chvrches, Goldfrapp and Robyn.
