Ou Est frontman leaps to death at Belgian music fest(Reuters) - The lead singer of British pop band Ou Est Le Swimming Pool jumped to his death after playing at a music festival in Belgium, British authorities have confirmed.

Charles Haddon, 22, leapt from a telecommunications mast behind the main stage at the Pukkelpop festival and fell to a parking area below on Friday. Belgian police are treating the death as suicide.

"We can confirm the death of a British national on August 20 in Hasselt, Belgium," a British Foreign Office spokeswoman said.

The band had performed at the three-day festival in Hasselt shortly before Haddon climbed up the mast. The band played the Glastonbury and Bestival festivals last year and were due to start a British tour in October.

They are most known for their track ‘Dance the Way I Feel’ and the Armand van Helden remix included on several mixes over the summer of 2009. Charles Haddon R.I.P.

One of the most encouraging offerings last week was the UK release of the new single "All the Eastern Girls" by London-based Chapel Club. The band recently headlined on the Emerge NME Radar Tour, and BBC Radio's Zane Lowe previously recognized the track as his "Hottest Record in the World," but don't expect this record to chart in The Official UK Singles Chart, which, in common with the US Billboard Hot 100, is dominated by RnB and TV talent show artists. As a foretaste of Chapel Club's debut album expected early next year, "All the Eastern Girls" is full of promise for the future.

An emerging band based in fashionable East London, Chapel Club is a guitar band that has developed its own, distinctive, trademark sound. Intense, arty, experimental and yet listenable, the melodies are expressive, generally dramatic, at times tuneful, and often dissonant, with intricate guitar riffs and hooks backed by deliberate playing and rhythmic drumming which every now and then explode into driving guitar licks and dynamic drum rolls. The lyrics, written about lust, love, and loss, are intelligent, darkly poetic, frequently pensive, sometimes reflective, and occasionally contemplative, written and sung with meticulous timing by vocalist Lewis Bowman in a soft, crooning voice which has a quality curiously reminiscent of Ian McCulloch at his finest.

Referred to as "gloomsters" by some, Chapel Club's music has been described as "Moody, majestic and magnificent" by others. Global Editor of Billboard Magazine, Mark Sutherland, described the band's sound as, "Amazing… shoegaze but with songs and balls."
