Belles – Pass It On (Review)

Taking influence from the indie-rock and pop scene, Belles return with their distinctive sound in “Pass It On”. Produced by Jake Rousham at Metway Studios (Royal Blood, Nick Cave, The Levellers), the number clearly defines an era for the Belles. 

Speaking on the track, Frontman George Clark expressed that “Pass It On means a lot to us as a band.It’s nice to able to reflect upon the fact that the problems we face daily often aren’t as deep as we think. We hope that people listening to the song can share this feeling with us. This was also our first venture into writing a track with a pop direction in mind, which has been a really fun process.”

Vibrant with the glistening guitar melodies, the production refuses to be ignored, making it a perfect indie anthem. There’s elements of synth-pop in the arrangement and even nudges towards the style of The Cure meets New Order. Inventive, nostalgic and overall memorable, what’s not to like?

Score: 3/5
