Balthazar – Thin Walls

Thin Walls is the latest album from the Belgian band Balthazar. They recorded this album with British producers Ben Hillier and Jason Cox. The opening track is one of the more immediately accessible songs on the album, sounding like a mix of Arcade Fire and the last Arctic Monkeys album. There’s a bit of Lou Reed influence in the vocal delivery, especially on tracks like “So Easy” and “Wait Any Longer”. Violins and other orchestral instruments play an important role throughout the album. Thin Walls is a mellow, pleasant album to listen to, but can be a bit difficult to connect with.

Play: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9
