Bell X1 are back

Great song . Love the hint of Talking Heads. Looking forward to the new album...

This is a grower!

Bell X1 are clearly very talented. This song took me a little by surprise. The 30 second clip is not enough to do this song justice. Its has touches of great 80's music about it. Perhaps a touch of Talking Heads which is no bad thing. I must confess, it has grown on me. A solid first release from a great (!) album. If you like this song, I would encourage you to check out the album....and see 'em live!

Great Song!

Love this song! Very catchy. Reminds me of the Doors... Hear it a lot on the radio. Definitely buy this song, but watch out, it may get stuck in your head!

Having recorded albums with the likes of Nick Seymour (Crowded House) and Roger Béchirian (Elvis Costello), the band is best known for its ability to craft infectious, durable, radio-friendly hooks with strong production values.
