Jinte Deprez, who co-fronts Belgian indie band Balthazar; unveils his new solo project, J. Bernardt, which sees him explore new musical ground sculpted out of evocative synth beats drawn from a range of influences. Whether inspired by his father's love of Kraftwerk or the pop sensibilities of his own musical discoveries, J. Bernardt marks a new and exciting journey for Jinte. Debut Running Days brims with elements of R&B, soul and hip-hop; echoing the emotional clarity of ‘90s-era D'Angelo and the vocal resonance of How To Dress Well, over beats inspired of Child of Lov and the melodic simplicity of Gorillaz. Whether in the sunny vocal hooks of "The Direction," the jazzy, mellifluous horns of "Wicked Streets" and "Motel," or the lush serpentine rhythms of "Calm Down," which surges with synths and skittering breaks. The album title serves as an open-ended question in a way: not about what he is running away from, but what glittering new chapter he is running towards.
