Belleruche - Stormbird
Belleruche release their debut single ‘Stormbird’ from their forthcoming fourth album ‘Rollerchain’ due for release on Tru Thoughts label this coming May.
At only three minute, this dual vocal line, tempo shifting distorted oddity is unlike Belleruche's previous work, but draws from the same source of musical inspiration. Like a subbass driven pop song with clipped drums and feedback lops, 'Stormbird' grabs your attention and runs away with it.
Belleruche have evolved five years of broken blues, electronic punk and turntable soul into a sound so diverse, it merges to create a standalone genre all of its own. The three-piece formed from the unlikely combination of a jazz singer, turntablist and rock guitarist began their journey in the back rooms of London pubs swiftly moving forward to touring the globe and now play to sold out venues nationwide.
Belleruche hit the road this May, touring throughout the UK and France and then festivals throughout the summer.
