Jinte Deprez and Maarten Devoldere, the energy and creativity behind Belgian indie pop rockers Balthazar, went their separate ways after their third album. Now, reinvigorated, they’re back with album number 4, Fever. Their hiatus seems to have some good, clearing out the cobwebs or whatever they got up to, as this album is their most consistent to date, looser, happier, but they've still got the hooks. 180g vinyl and CD on Play It Again Sam.

Running Days

Taking some time out from the day job, Balthazar member Jinte Deprez comes through with ten tracks of chest-swelling indie-’n’-b. The press release claims influence from How to Dress Well and Gorillaz, but there’s also more than a pinch of Plan B and Adele to the swagger of tracks like ‘The Other Man’.

Wait Any Longer (Live EP)

Belgian band Balthazar brought their sound to the people of Europe last year, touring their award-winning Thin Walls album. Wait Any Longer collects 4 songs from various live dates where the group let their compositions stretch out a little. 10” vinyl EP released in a limited edition for Record Store Day, out on Play It Again Sam.

Thin Walls

Drawing on indie rock peers known for their ornateness and on others for the lack of word mincing -- from Grizzly Bear to the Arctic Monkeys -- Balthazar make sure they reference their influences' penchant for writing melodies and choruses, creating heart-throb pop music that recalls a verifiable golden era. Thin Walls was recorded with studied professional Ben Hillier, who has worked with Blur, and his production articulates articulation.


Leipzig is the new single from Belgian band Balthazar. The band wrote the song whilst touring Europe with Editors, who share the same label. Leipzig is the first single to be taken from their forthcoming, as-yet-untitled, third album which is expected to wow fans and critics alike. Leipzig is available on 7” vinyl.

The debut album by Belgian five-piece, Balthazar is now available on vinyl for the first time since its original CD release in 2010. Applause won the best album of 2010 at the 2011 Music Industry Awards. The band have been likened to Arctic Monkeys, The Streets, The XX and Gorillaz, which is a mix I just can’t comprehend.
