The Belgian Alt-Pop Songwriter Shares Her Long-Awaited Album.
“Meetings, writing sessions, songs that, like me, were fueled by travelling back and forth between London and Brussels”. This is how European pop royalty Blanche describes the time between her first performance in front of the European stage and the release of her new album ‘Empire’
It has to be said, we much prefer the new incarnation of Blanche to the Eurovision entry for Belgium all those years ago. She’s took stock of her sound and began working with Rich Cooper, the producer responsible for Banks and returned with a synth-focused, lush new sound. Since launching the project, the initial singles have gone on to support from Mahogany, Clash, Earmilk, Complex UK and Nothing But Hope & Passion. Spotify have also supported the album with support on their New Music Friday playlists across Europe. The album presents a stunning journey through electronica, to indie and pop. Speaking on the new album, Blanche states:
“Empire is an album to be digested from start to finish, whereby every song has been placed with intention. Empire is rich in arrangements, nuanced in its rhythms and dripped in diversified themes. This is my album, these are my songs and my feelings. Some songs are more personal, others are like modern tales.”
