Share new single “Linger On”

London headline show on 8th November

New album Sand out now via Play It Again Sam

Belgian art-poppers Balthazar have unveiled a fourth single from their acclaimed album Sand, out now on Play It Again Sam. “Linger On” is a slice of pure shimming pop bliss, with slinky synths providing the backdrop to a tale of patiently waiting for a love story to begin.

The most intoxicating artists, such a sultry appeal exudes from their latest single release. This infectious attitude and charm ooze from the tone, the vocal notes, the words, and the resilient beat. Every texture, riff, and rhythm formed to create this alluring ambiance will leave a distinct mark and long lasting impression.

The band say of the song, “”Linger On” is kind of a contrast to the other songs which are more about impatience or restlessness. This one is more a naive waiting for love story, having the patience to wait for it.  Because of Corona we had to change our workflow to finish the album, we couldn’t get together in the studio so we had to work more in solitude, sending each other stuff constantly which resulted in a sound which is more electronic, more drum samples and more synthesisers. 

“This song was actually an older song from the Fever era but it was more acoustic back then, we thought it didn’t work that well, but for this album it was great to give it a second life and use this electronical approach –  so sometimes you have to be patient, even with a song.”

Balthazar will also return to the UK to headline the Electric Ballroom on 8th November:
