BIOGRAPHY

Warhaus is the artistic alter ego and solo recording project of Maarten Devoldere – who, along with Jinte Deprez, fronts the urbanely soulful Belgian rock band Balthazar. Although Devoldere has up until now kept his Warhaus persona well under the radar, the rare glimpses offered up to this point have conjured up a darkly esoteric lyrical universe, fuelled by desire and love, haunted by a hunger for the fleeting, yearning to express the unsayable; We Fucked A Flame Into Being probes such depths savagely.


“I love contradictions,” asserts Devoldere. “They are musically very appealing to me: raw vs. fundamentally passionate, brutal vs. romantic, art vs. Kitsch, archaic vs. modern”. The French sixties, a touch of exoticism, a careless apathy: Leonard Cohen and Serge Gainsbourg are never far away, as We Fucked a Flame Into Being cleverly coalesces fifty years of music history.

“I’m at the end of my twenties now. With this record I close an important period,” Devoldere divulges. “It’s an ode to love, to its excesses and elusiveness. Though love songs are a form of advertising: you portray a woman and the listener should fall in love with her too.”
