“Even if one didn’t know the two bands share a country of origin, Balthazar would still elicit comparisons with dEUS. Specifically, both acts mix elements of chamber pop with more traditional indie rock tropes and, more generally, the two acts share a certain crumpled elegance although it should be noted that Balthazar are far less experimental than their elder countrymen.
But there are several other influences at play on Thin Walls: Last Call beings to mind Tindersticks; the barroom blues of I Looked For You resembles late-era Tom Waits, while So Easy’s queasy strings would have fitted perfectly on The Beatles’ White Album. Elsewhere, the scabrous guitars on Then What finds Balthazar at their most straightforwardly ‘indie rock’; Nightclub and Bunker showcase the band’s talent for writing elegant, serpentine melodies, while closer True Love would make the perfect singalong for a pub lock-in.” MusicOMH
