The Imaginary Suitcase

The Imaginary Suitcase is the one Belgian singer-songwriter Laurent Leemans keeps his dead or barely breathing illusions, the memories of fantasized lives and his many considerations about life, death and the confusing bits inbetween.

Soulful and melodic songs built round a deep and versatile voice ("kind of the son Suzanne Vega and Nick Cave would have had" someone wrote) at times caressing, at times ominous, and deceptively simple guitar chords. Can you say The Imaginary Suitcase is a sort of Belgian counterpart to The World Of Skin or maybe Joseph Arthur’s evil twin? Why not?
