Reliably informed

A brilliantly captivating double dose of dextrous and cerebral wonder; this cracking double A-side from Gosforth-based quartet Belle Skies is extraordinary. St. Rose Sings! is packed full of glorious sonic details that weave around the vivid and engaging lyrics. The way the lead guitar lines dance over the steady pulse of bass synth and cello create a rich atmosphere which acts as the ideal foundation for vocalist/guitarist Tom’s dextrous vocal runs, which expertly serve the fantastic lyrics.

Moment, which is about “having a shit time on New Year’s Day”, is a dark and foreboding narrative replete with unorthodox drumming, deep cello drones and dynamic shifts which embody the anxiety and uncertainty of the lyrics.
