GREAT NEW ALT ROCK FROM MELBOURNE

 

Australia isn’t exactly a hotbed for rock music these days, we get pop and alt-pop forced down our throats on a daily basis, but Rock? Nah… One day it’s going to be bands like Bellusira who ride the wave of any resurge, let’s hope they can do it at home before they are forced overseas like the best of our Rock acts.

 

 


On ‘Connection’ Bellusira sound like a band on top of their game, after a few years that have seen some great videos, EPs and some great support slots you get the feeling Bellusira is ready for the next step. On the evidence of this album, they are ready too.

 

 


Combining heady lyrical content with a raw and emotional soundtrack Bellusira sound somehow familiar and yet at the same time refreshingly different and it’s that combination of comfort and then suddenly feeling like you are drowning in the music that makes them feel so special.

 

 


On an album with no real weak-point it’s so hard to play favourites but first single ‘Cachango’ is a great place to start before you get into the heavier, harder blunter-force of ‘Soul Call’ and ‘Follow’ – two of our current favourites. It’s not all blunt-force trauma though! ‘Warrior’ is a great slower number that broods and oozes from the speakers. In short you really do have to hear this before we lose them to the wider world because make no mistake Bellusira is a band to cherish now before we have to release them to the rest of the world.

 

 


Great modern rock that reaches out to fans of all kinds of genres.

 

 

 


  
Bellusira will be touring Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide until July.
