• Image of Balthazar - Thin Walls

'Thin Walls' is Belgium based Balthazar’s 3rd album and first to be released in the US after gaining critical and commercial success with previous albums in Europe. For this album the band travelled to the UK to work with Blur, Depeche Mode and Elbow producer Ben Hillier and Jason Cox (Gorillaz, Massive Attack) at Yellow Fish Studios in Lewes. The resultant record is a career-best: a grizzly indie-rock album full of nocturnal grooves and mesmeric melodies. Balthazar’s two songwriters, Maarten Devoldere and Jinte Deprez, lyrical themes always seem to land on the same page and these are songs of anxiety and hope and love and fear. Usually it’s a girl causing any or all of those emotions.
