Rarely do you find a voice that is rich and sumptuous yet inherently fragile. Bela's voice captivated me from the get go - Tom Robinson’s Fresh On The Net
Originating all the way from Newcastle, Australia, Bela Takes Chase moved to London specifically to follow her creative path, and has been building up a great UK underground following ever since.
Growing up next door to Silverchair’s Daniel Johns, Bela has been exposed to quality music and musicianship from an early age. Focusing on song-writing and live performance, Bela has already gained a strong following on social media. Bela’s powerful yet fragile voice is a mix between Emiliana Torrini, Sia Furler and Martina Topley-Bird. It is soft yet immense, moving yet memorable, and the upcoming new single demonstrates this impeccably.
Having supported Jake Bugg, To Kill a King and Neon Jungle and headlined at last years Lubstock and Wilkestock festivals, Bela ‘s first release of 2015 is Collide. Its made for the fans of Morcheeba, Beach House, Lamb and London Grammar, and is as soothing and delicate as expected. Pulsing beats and warm keyboard and guitar embellish Bela’s uniqueness and quirkiness. The whole song throbs gently below the surface and is warmly wrapped in reverb from start to finish.
Bela “ Last year I did some gigs where we added a 3 piece string section. It was a challenge to adapt our set and even to get on some stages, but it gave me a taste for a widescreen sound, so when we finished gigging for 2014 we went into the studio and Collide is the result. Also while we were on tour we had Phil Spector on loop in the van and I’m sure there’s a smattering of that in there”
Subtly filled with rich ambience, the production is filled with underscoring melodies and driving momentum, and by creating a nostalgic feel through out, it turns a catchy song into an infectious one.
A soulful tune, Bela Takes Chase, Collide will be available for sale and download from May 24th on I Tunes
