Soldier’s Heart – “African Fire”

Belgian pop isn’t something that I’m particularly familiar with—that’s more disco naïveté’s realm—but Soldier’s Heart sent over their initial single “African Fire” and it hits all the right notes. Bubbling synths and horns threaten to overturn the bubblegum nature of the track and nearly ominous verses are balanced with a catchy, looping chorus sung by the four piece’s frontman Sylvie Kreusch . Their Dali-channeling video for the song is included below as well. If this track is any indication, the indie scene in Belgium is one to watch.
