BELL X1 just released the first song, Starlings Over Brighton Pier, from their upcoming album Chop Chop (out on July 1st). “From the moment I heard demos, I knew this was a special batch of songs, nestled in the sweet spot between wistfulness and joy,” explains Thomas Bartlett, who oversaw BELL X1‘s sixth album alongside THE NATIONAL‘s longtime producer (Peter Katis). “The challenge was in making the songs rich and robust without losing the fragility and intimacy that made them so striking in the first place.”.
Starlings Over Brighton Pier shows that BELL X1 perfectly managed this challenge. A rich and robust song that still feels fragile and intimate. Enjoy.
