This song comes from Jinte Deprez, one of the lead singers, and follows the first two solo projects to come from a Balthazar member.
Balthazar is extremely talented. After three studio albums and massive live tours around Europe, three members decided to go solo while the band was taking a break. Warhaus shot first with We Fucked a Flame Into Being in 2016; then Zimmerman followed recently with The Afterglow. Now it’s J. Bernardt’s turn, and the track is as excellent as expected.
The Other Man is the second single from his unnamed solo project and was recorded at Jinte’s house in Gent. The song differs greatly from Balthazar’s rock style -like Warhaus and Zimmerman‘s projects- and goes for something more electronic.
For a six-minute song, the rhythm is clearly one of the main achievements, going from calm to explosive in ten seconds. More mysterious, longer and even more satisfying, The Other Man is definitely a perfect track to keep us going until the album’s release.
J. Bernard is touring all around Belgium and you can find all the upcoming dates on his website (his ABclub show is already sold out).
