If you need some spy music to tiptoe down dark alleys in a black catsuit and face mask to- look no further.
Hooverphonic is a Belgian electropop group founded in 1995.Â They have a sound so slinky it is what I imagine played in Benjamin’s head when Mrs. Robinson slowly pulled on her black nylons in front him.Â Think a kiss stolen by Sean Connery as James Bond.Â Think Rene Russo and Pierce Brosnan in the dance scene of The Thomas Crown Affair.Â Hooverphonic is what Thievery Corporation tries to be but just hasn’t been able to get there.
Enjoy your sampling of Hooverphonic’s best below.Â And then try to get back to work.
