Belgian Fog

Belgian Fog is the work of LA native Robert Dale, who records, mixes and masters from a home studio in his Seattle residence. Utilizing electronic and lo-fi elements, the music is mixed to evenly blend his pastiche-pop arrangements with a strong vocal presence and create effortlessly addictive and dark music.
Many valid comparisons could be made with the flurry of artists fitting the contemporary zeitgeist of ‘adult-themed lyrics against a downtempo-electronic backdrop,’ but he has stated his strongest conscious influence comes from 60s Flemish chanteur Jacques Brel and his ability to create believable characters that provide insight into a previously darkened subject.
