“The Belle Sounds never leave folk too far behind. The brightness of the songs flashes Pop at times but a singer/songwriter production integrity keeps the tunes honest. “The Starry Eyed” lets the vocal guide over a hushed but determined acoustic strum that gives itself up for parade ground drumming and assured electric guitar chords. The Belle Sounds hints at a secret weapon, and the reason why this took on a band feel. The key is in the diversity of the audio; Noelle’s songs change instruments like they were on an audio runway. “Just Like Gold” is a heart thump peppered with notes serving well the darkness of the narrator’s judgments, “When We Were Young” reminisces over a brushed snare shuffle under flugelhorn echoes and “Rockingham Lane” with Noelle’s vocal over the Spector of a timeless rock’n’roll arrangement. A shining moment on The Belle Sounds is the breathy promise to sooth like “Bourbon on Your Lips”, asking only to be held tight “like the belt ”
