I was tottering about on the internet today and all of a sudden this song appeared on my Soundcloud. I’m a big fan of Belleruche (I wrote this a little while ago) and thoroughly enjoyed their last album 270 Stories. They’re signed to Tru Thoughts, a really hard-working Brighton based label who’s artists rarely disappoint. This new single is a precursor to Belleruche’s fourth studio album, called Rollerchain and it’s due out at the start of March. The press release explains that the band are leaning towards a more bass heavy, darker sound which on first listening seems fairly accurate. It does have a cracking guitar riff though and the way they change the tempo, with the breakdown that gets faster and faster to the end of the song is exciting and compelling. If you’re already a fan then this might take a few listens as it is a bit different, but it’s good. If you’re not a fan yet then listen to this a few times and you’ll be on your way.
