There are two sides to Belgian musician Maarten Devoldere: part frontman for quartet Balthazar, part sultry crooner under the pseudonym Warhaus.
They say time waits for no one, but ‘they’ obviously haven’t come across Warhaus yet. Having quietly used this moniker for the past fews years, 2016 marks the first official album release from the Belgian musician’s mysterious alter-ego. Existing in an Anton Corbijn monochrome cityscape, We f&ck£d A Flame Into Being introduces us to Warhaus with an irresistible sinister charm. Like Nick Cave’s red right hand, had it self amputated and traded the dusty black coat for a crisp tailored suit, or Tom Waits had he discovered lozenges a long time ago, Devoldere’s Mr Hyde character is the lone troubadour who speaks sparingly yet with a sharp-tongued bite.
Through poetic narratives and rhythmic scores, Warhaus creates an intimacy that seduces you away from your comfort zone and into a Lynchian tango.
