Reliably informed

Pete Bell reminds us of the fleeting nature of time on his newest single The Sands of Time, singing “the years slip away”, as well as “I will soon run out of time”.

This latest track sees Bell further explore his guitar-driven, folk-esque sound, radiating warmth with each chord of the instrument. On the surface, The Sands of Time seems simple, but listening attentively becomes a rewarding experience with the gentle bass line permeating through the drum-less track.

The instrumental is incredibly strong, but Bell’s lyricism is truly where the track shines. Time seems to be an issue that weighs heavily on Bell, resulting in an intimate and melancholic tune that’s well worth your time.
