Belgian Fog Delivers Ecstatic, Intricate Melodies [stream]

Posted on the 02 May 2013 by Thewildhoneypie @thewildhoneypie


Under the moniker Belgian Fog, Robert Dale melds keen pop sensibilities with smooth, sweeping melodies. His song “Wait for Help” is an amazing blend of infectious synths, playful alternative percussion, and vocals that were made for electro-pop. The track begins with climbing, metallic synth and shakers that juxtapose Dale’s crystal-clear falsetto in the best of ways. The chorus of the track is an ecstatic burst of layered vocals, pulsing drums, and electronic claps. The bass is tight, the guitar is poignantly sparse and the slithering synths provide some really innovative and fresh sounding textures.

Better than these elements, though, are Dale’s vocals. He sounds like an ideal blend of the lead singer of Javelin and Andrew Bird, delivering melodies that encompass intricate rhythms and span multiple octaves with a nonchalant fluidity. Dale’s bouncy, contagious falsetto commands the track, and this, in conjunction with his unique electro-pop style of songwriting, suggests a very bright future for Belgian Fog.
