J. Bernardt’s new single ‘Taxi’ out now

J. Bernardt – aka Jinte Deprez (Balthazar)  shares the first taste of new music with new single Taxi, which also includes a second track Matter Of Time. Alongside this, J. Bernardt releases details of the upcoming studio album Contigo, out on 17th May 2024 via Play It Again Sam. Available to pre-order here.

Taxi is a song taking place in the midst of confusion and early contemplation, directed at a taxi driver who once picked up the singer. It is a literal trip (“can you please drive me to a point of no return”) as an escape to process the news of a breakup. The song showcases the elements of upcoming album Contigo – from wild grooves, over humming backing vocals to cinematographic strings. A backdrop of taut, streamlined funk is met with thick bass and guitar twangs, adding to the contrast of strings and female choir.

Deprez is best known as one half of the singer-songwriter duo of Balthazar, one of Belgium’s most beloved and respected alt.rock bands for over two decades. As a group, they have performed at numerous prestigious events and venues such as All Points EastBritish Summer TimeElectric BallroomVillage UndergroundScala, as well as selling over 600,000 albums worldwide. Running Days has been streamed over 40 million times globally, and counting.
