“Supplying a whisky slurred Stevie Nicks drawl to the world of pop, her path heads in the same direction as Ellie Goulding before looping back on itself to visit the chosen territory of Frou Frou and Bjorn. Documented on her incredibly debut EP Rough Luxe, though still unsigned this one woman band has got what it takes to cross the road into the mainstream without compromising her solid production and musicianship. Pimped by Music Week, Milkshakes and Moustaches and the Von Pip Express as having “much more substance to her work than merely banging out camp Euro disco anthems”, she’s unarguably the lady to go to if you’re looking for electro pop with a bit of bite. ”
“Airy, fresh-sounding electropop"”
"Miles Away is a strong, well produced pop song that stands on its own two feet with some particularly catchy hooks"
"(Bela) is a chart smash in the making, destined for some serious chart success".
"A truly unique collection of songs, ‘Rough Luxe’ is the perfect mix of genres, blending them perfectly to create something entirely magical. Passionate, poetic and poignant, <a href="http://belatakeschase.com/">Belá Takes Chase</a> is always remaining true to who she is; a great artist. We cannot wait to see what Belá has in store next and hope her genre dancing delights keep coming our way."
“Bella Takes Chase sounds as every bit beautiful as she looks.”
“I love emails where I learn something from reading them. It was this email that taught me there was a Newcastle in Australia, which begs the questions; is it like the Newcastle in England? No, no it’s not. Anyway, Miles Away is taken from Bella Takes Chase‘s Rough Luxe EP which should be with you by November 6th. You can listen to the first song taken from said EP below which should get you into her brilliant indie-pop sound.”
“A synth overdose,casual piano and the angelic vocals of Bela Takes Chase? You may think her new single Miles Away instantly tells a tale of pop but wait a while longer and the song exposes itself in a blur of heady atmosphere and strings. Bliss”
"This girls so good......her voice fills the room with a joyous atmosphere"
“The platinum blonde Australian-born and London-residing singer seems to effortlessly juggle model looks, talent and ambition. Bela Takes Chase certainly seems tailor made for mainstream success."”
“I was lucky to get the chance to interview this very promising young talent, who looks set to take the world by storm. Full of charm and charisma, she answered my questions in an astute and professional manner. Her favourite instrument is the 12 string guitar, and she counts indie/folk as the genre she comes back to the most. She is without a doubt one to watch out for. You should all be seeing much more of her in time to come.”
“This track will be released later this month on Vicious Records and I must say, I am excited for this track. This original has the summer sounds through the song. The synths used in this song are insanely catchy. Plus the vocals from Bela Takes Chase are just perfect for this song. This is one of the songs I am looking forward to hearing in a live set. Definitely a song for the summer.”
"Sometimes, a new artist surprises you with the beauty and honesty of their music. In very rare cases, it emerges that said artist also has a personality. In extreme cases they also happen to be incredibly beautiful".
“Heartfelt tracks such as Radiate, Eye Pennies, Compulsary Resolution and Take What’s Mine. These songs are rich in sensitivity, subtlety and raw emotion. Throughout the song Radiate her wonderfully rich, soothing voice soars above her sympathetic guitar accompaniment, bringing to mind the music of Nick Drake. I believe Belá Takes Chase! stands a great chance of attracting the kind of loyal following she truly deserves. Potential listeners are strongly advised to check out her website (belatakeschase.com) and her debut EP, Rough Luxe, which is due to be released in October. UK tour dates for September will be announced soon.”
“The soundbed works so fine with the mesmerising vocals by Bela Takes Chase and the result is an anthem for the festivals and big rooms too. Rock as we knew it is dead. The new era is born with djs and EDM producers replacing the rock stars and Breakdown is one of them. This remix for instance is EDM track but with rock attitude. Love iT!”
“Names that pop into my head when I heard this were instantly Lana Del Ray and La Roux, much rather listen to this than the latter I’ll be honest. I wouldn’t be surprised if I hear this on the radio doing the rounds in a few months, and will be interested to see what an album of this is like. In short: Took me by surprise in a good way on the first listen, and is now gonna be stuck in my head for a good few days…thanks Bela…”
“This is simply outstanding. Introducing Bela Takes Chase and ‘Eye Pennies.’ With a voice that recalls Dusty Springfield and Nancy Sinatra, Eye Pennies is a delicious slice of low-fi americana. The near whispered vocals are rich, hazy, delicate, fragile and sumptuous all at the same time. This is without doubt the first signs of love #FSOL. According to her website we can expect the first live shows in late September and a debut EP titled ‘Rough Luxe’ in October. We can’t wait.”
“Very impressive Bela Takes Chase has much more substance to her work than merely banging out camp Euro disco anthems. She’s a photogenic lass who’s recently moved from her native Australia to London to peruse her musical dreams, A chorus as big as Robert Smiths 80′s hair- do”
“She is without a doubt one to watch out for. You should all be seeing much more of her in time to come.”
“Bela Takes Chase is the singer-songwriter from London, UK. The unsigned artist has been captivating audiences with her impressive, organic-electric, style and beautiful, soft, vocal tones. The singer has received a lot of praise from critics, with some referring to her as a modern-day Nancy Sinatra and Dusty Springfield. Two artists that many females wouldn’t mind being associated too. The singer releases her début EP, ‘Rough Luxe’, in October and is, currently, preparing a series of UK tour dates throughout September.”
