Disorientations is a post-punk band from Antwerp, Belgium, composed of lifelong friends Lukas Van Camp on bass, Tomas Serrien on drums and Niels Elsermans on vocals and guitar. The moniker came to exist while jamming endlessly as a way to process shared loss experiences. Combining an old 80’s vibe with more alternative punk and noise music, their music became characterized by an intense and contemporary cold-blooded sound that comes to life during their intense and noisy performances. Their debut album ‘Memory Lanes‘ was released on PIAS Recordings in 2022, receiving critical acclaim, in and outside the underground scene. Their second album ‘Lost Today‘ (out on April 19, 2024) brings a new musical shape that combines their hash emotional sound, the raw rhythmic power and the captivating vocals with more in-depth songwriting.
‘Lost Today’ is a collection of introspective haunting songs and embodies the compelling moods and emotions of the members of the band. Overall, their music is a translation of contradictions in life. They muse about the intense attraction and repulsion of loving people around us and the appearance of rough emptiness when you lose something fragile. By experimenting with additional guitar layers and atypical song structures, their new music opens up an exciting path towards an alternative and mature sound that seems to reconcile the sharp bursts of noise rock, the melancholic atmosphere of post-punk and an airy wall of sound reminiscent of the early 90s shoegaze vibe.
