Three albums in and it’s clear Belgian quintet Balthazar are far from out of ideas, latest offering Thin Walls is a captivating listen, full of the energy and frantically changing feelings of touring, it’s something new from a band so previously considered and deliberate in their work. Now to continue the trend they’re bringing their live show to the UK, stopping off at Village Underground for a huge celebration of their music.
