J. Bernardt – Calm Down


Fans of Belgian band Balthazar may already be acquainted with Jinte Deprez, the co-frontman of the aforementioned project and multi-instrumentalist now making music under the moniker J. Bernardt. Emerging from his home studio in Ghent with an altogether different sound, Deprez’s solo enterprise takes a turn into a more soulful category, reminiscent of Nick Murphy FKA Chet Faker.

Drawing on a range of influences from his father’s love of Kraftwerk to his own pop sensibilities, Deprez’s first single “Calm Down” is a seductive groove draped in delicious, broody vocals. The effort, out now via Play It Again Sam will be a part of Deprez’s debut record, slated for a 2017 release.
