Suffocating Minds (SFMD) is mainly influenced by electro, New Wave, Industrial, and even rock – they like to call their style new electro wave.
The band is made up of Alain DE BECK on drums, David NINANE on bass – Vincent LEMINEUR on vocals, and Grégory LACOMBLE on synths. Suffocating Minds manages to send out seemingly contradictory and complementary signals: strength & weakness, energy & bitterness, doubt and confidence, nostalgia and enthusiasm.
In 2013, SFMD shares not once, but twice the stage with flagship band Front 242. Their first album “In a different Life” allows them to perform on different Belgian stages, but also in France with cities like Paris, Reims, and Lille. Airplay on specialized English radios ensues and the band also delves into the remix wave (requested by the likes of Puggy, RMS and James). Under a blazing sun, 2015 sees them playing during the “Vitrines des Francos”. And after one year and a half of production hell, their newest release “Second Life” has been released in may 2017.
