A five piece alternative / pop band from Belgium. Influences that may spring to mind include Tindersticks, late era Tom Waits and dEUS. They mix elements of chamber pop with more traditional indie rock.
"Balthazar has the ability to surf on their main singer’s spleen. Jinte Deprez makes the band sound a bit like Coldplay, although his voice is way rougher, maybe inspired by The Pogues’ Shane McGowan. There’s something reminiscent of the greatest moments by engaged bands like Midnight Oil in Balthazar’s music" - RReverb.com
