Balthazar, the five piece fronted by the dual songwriting talents of Maarten Devoldere and Jinte Deprez,follow the release of their debut album in the UK, ‘Rats’, with a single release and tour dates in May and June. ‘Sinking Ship’ is taken from ‘Rats’ an album that Q suggested ‘provides melancholy and melody to delight lovers of the dark and intense’ in review. 

‘Sinking Ship’ ‘shimmers’ according to The 405 or is, in the more simple words of IndieLondon, ‘fantastic’. With Artrocker suggesting of ‘Rats’ that ‘this beautifully melancholy album from the orchestral indie-rock quintet could easily be their breakthrough’, previous London sell outs at The Water Rats and The Lexington alongside support dates in the UK with Local Natives the tour dates represent the next step on a quietly effective story to date.
