I was completely saddened yesterday to learn that Charles Haddon of Ou Est Le Swimming Pool committed suicide at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium.

Ou Est Le Swimming Pool were one of the brightest young electronica bands on the scene and I can’t just quite get over the devastating loss. Their new album “Christ Died For Our Synths” was one of the albums that I was really looking forward to and I hope the band decides to carry on and release it for the fans. I would go as far as to say that they should not feel bad in looking for a replacement either. The world needs to hear how incredible their music is and it’s just heartbreaking to know the band has to suffer such a loss in the exciting beginnings of their promising careers.

Rest in peace young Charles Haddon. Your contribution to electronic pop will not be forgotten by me.
