I can’t believe the new Belleruche album isn’t coming out until May – living with Ricky from the band, it’s been a constant presence in our lives since they first started working on it at the beginning of 2011. It’s been a hell of a year for all three of them, and it’s been fascinating to see their new songs take shape and hear about how they’ve been experimenting in the studio.
Anyway, the first single – Stormbird – is coming out soon and here it is:
It’s a real step forward in the band’s sound and I love it. And having heard the rest of the new album, it seems to me that 2012 is going to be the year that Belleruche finally get the recognition they deserve.
