Hailing from Antwerp, synthpop trio Fortress stands for dark, atmospheric electronica that is carried by the unique, dreamy voice of singer and producer Hanne Torfs. Together with Joppe Vanwetswinkel (keys) and Nils Tijtgat (bass), Torfs creates a sultry and alternative sound. Seductive and danceable.
From 2020 until mid 2021 concert venue Trix chose Fortress as an artist in residence. Since then, the band has written numerous new songs, recorded a cinematographic concert film and developed their energetic live show. Trix called them "the hardest working band in town".
Their first singles already draw the attention of both Studio Brussel and Radio 1, who called Torfs “the Roísín Murphy of Belgium”. The band also received a lot of praise from all kinds of music blogs. Their debut EP Dreamscape was released on February 17 2023.
The band showcased their EP in venues like Arenberg, Antwerp, Café Café in Hasselt and Charlatan and is now ready to go on a little summer tour. See dates and info here.
