The Groove Nashville

Warhaus - the brainchild of alt-crooner Maarten Devoldere (Balthazar) - returns with his third studio album, Ha Ha Heartbreak. It comes 5 years after his self-titled album which drew comparisons to a "millennial Leonard Cohen", singing deep, dark and groove-ridden songs of love and hate, managing to be both romantic and searingly brutal at the same time. The new songs came gushing out of him in a mere three weeks in the sultry city of Palermo. All Devoldere needed was the solitude of a hotel room, a guitar, a microphone, and a heart that had recently been broken into thousands of pieces. Ha Ha Heartbreak is a moving emotional exploration that wraps Devoldere's sorrow into catchy hooks, instant singalong choruses and irresistible melodies. As the hurt punches through the lyrics and vocals with blunt force, Ha Ha Heartbreak becomes the most personal and truthful Warhaus album to date, one in which Devoldere navigates the different stages of mourning and grief: starting with denial, passing through overconfident resistance, moving toward despair, to finally arrive at humble resignation in the gloomy conclusion "Best I Ever Had": "All I ever wanted was a lot / to be your man was something I could not".
