'''Hooverphonic''' is a Belgian band.

Originally consisting of vocalist Esther Lybeert, keyboardist Frank Duchêne, bassist Alex Callier, and guitarist Raymond Geerts, Hooverphonic began as a product of the [[TheNineties '90s]] {{trip hop}} scene, but have since been more broadly described as an electronic pop-rock band.

Since their founding, Hooverphonic has seen frequent turnover in personnel, specifically regarding the band's lead vocalist. Liesje Sadonius replaced original singer Lybeert before the release of their debut album ''A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular'' in 1996, but departed herself shortly after. Following a brief stint fronted by Kyoko Bartsoen, Geike Arnaert became Hooverphonic's permanent vocalist from 1997 to 2008, the longest tenure to date. Noémie Wolfs then replaced Arnaert from 2010 to 2015. Hooverphonic proceeded without a vocalist for three years until Luka Cruysberghs joined in 2018.

Though they may not be familiar by name to those outside Belgium, Hooverphonic's music has been used in a variety of American film and television projects, including the likes of ''Film/IKnowWhatYouDidLastSummer'', ''Series/{{Entourage}}'', ''Series/CSICrimeSceneInvestigation'', and ''Series/TheUmbrellaAcademy''.

In October 2019, it was announced that Hooverphonic would represent Belgium in the 2020 Series/EurovisionSongContest, having the distinction of being the first act confirmed for the competition that year.
