Balthazar look to keep the anticipation train chugging for their upcoming fourth album Fever with the release of new single “I’m Never Gonna Let You Down Again”. With the album out on the 25th via Play It Again Sam, the Belgian duo looks to add a touch of swing to your usual breakup song.
“I’m never gonna let you down again is a breakup song with a twist, a groovy soul ode with a synthesizer, a chorus with a Bee Gee touch. It’s shaking it off, wherever it stuck.” Is what the band say about the new single, and we couldn’t put it better. Hardfelt lyrics are projected against an instrumental that dabbles in Bluesy guitar licks, fevered percussion and basslines that seem to strut endlessly into the night.
Balthazar add a bit of swing to the heartache, and the result is a single that comes with layers of depth, grooves and an underlying sense that everything’s going to be okay. In other words, the best kind of breakup song.
