Hooverphonic are a Belgian rock/pop group, formed in 1995. The band first called themselves Hoover. Later they changed their name to Hooverphonic after discovering other groups were already using the Hoover name.

On 10 October 2008, Geike Arnaert, the lead singer of the band, said she would leave the group by the end of the year.[1] On 29 October 2010, Hooverphonic said they would have a new single on their website. The videoclip showed fourteen possible singers. Noémie Wolfs[2] was the one selected.
