Balthazar debut the video for their new single ‘Sinking Ship’, a current favourite on 6 Music.
Featuring an acting role from top model Elise Crombez, the film was directed by twisted genius Joe Vanhoutteghem and shot by Nicolas Karakatsanis who was nominated for an Oscar for his work on the acclaimed film ‘Bullhead’. It’s a brilliantly black humoured piece of cartoon noir that you will rarely find outside of a European art-house cinema/DVD collection.
Following the release of their debut UK album, ‘Rats’, Balthazar have appeared at The Great Escape, sold out London’s Borderline and embarked on their first UK tour. With the album finding praise across the board, Artrocker stating ‘Rats’ ‘could easily be their breakthrough’ and Q suggesting that the album will ‘delight lovers of the dark and the intense’, the band return for further UK appearances at the Reading and Leeds Festivals over the August Bank Holiday.
