Share “Moment” Video Taken From New Short Film ‘Sand Castle Tapes’ Out 3rd June

New album Sand out now via Play It Again Sam

Following the release of new album Sand back in February, Belgian art-poppers Balthazar share a special performance video of album single “Moment“. The clip is taken from short film ‘Sand Castle Tapes‘, a documentary and live concert filmed by Heleen Declercq and co-produced with HolyShit sessions. 

The film captures the band’s stay over a few nights at a beautiful old castle near Brussels following lockdown. Having been kept apart until this stay, the band came together for the first time to interpret the new songs. Declercq’s inquisitive eye captures the magical atmosphere – ‘Sand Castle Tapes’ is not just a filmed live show, but an intimate look at Balthazar as their music and story unfolds within the ancient castle walls.

The band say of the stay: “You only get to fully understand an album when you start playing it together, the relaxed circumstances lead to a whole other way of interpreting the songs than we would have for a live show. It’s refreshing, it’s very human.”

Fans can buy tickets for the livestream premiere of the full ‘Sand Castle Tapes’ film at, released on 3rd June.

Wow, you need to hit play immediately and let the intoxicating atmosphere fall around you until you’re placed in the center swinging with the beat facing the vocalist. The sublime rhthms of this creation will consume you, deeply hypnotic rhthmic passages, this sensual tone and mighty brass emphasis. The vibe is simply exhillariting, Balthazar are fearless within their vision, proudly showcasing their unlimited potential whilst exploring another contemporary avenue for their creative outlook.
