Ão is a young and exciting Belgian four piece blending saudade, indie and subtle electronica, topped off with the phenomenal voice of frontwoman Brenda Corijn. Drawing on her Mozambican-Portuguese roots, Corijn sings in Portuguese and English, her lyrics entwining with Siebe Chau’s southern guitar, the ambient sounds and production of Jolan Decaestecker and the eclectic percussion of Bert Peyffers.

'Ao Mar', their debut album released in 2023, broadens their intoxicating sound, making it deeper, more danceable and poppier, much like FKA Twigs, Lhasa de Sela, Arooj Aftab, Çeu and James Blake.
