Originating all the way from Newcastle, Australia, Bela Takes Chase moved to London specifically to follow her creative path and has been building up a great UK underground following ever since.
Having grown up next door to Silverchair’s Daniel Johns, Bela has been exposed to quality music and musicianship from an early age. Focusing on song-writing and live performance, Bela has already gained a strong following on social media. Bela’s powerful yet fragile voice is a mix between Emiliana Torrini, Sia Furler and Martina Topley-Bird. It is soft yet immense, moving yet memorable, and the upcoming new single Radiate demonstrates this impeccably.
Radiate is made for the fans of Morcheeba, Beach House, Lamb and London Grammar, and is as soothing and delicate as expected. Pulsing beats and warm keyboard and guitar embellish Bela’s uniqueness and quirkiness. The whole song throbs gently below the surface and is warmly wrapped in reverb from start to finish. Radiate is subtly filled with rich ambience, the production is filled with underscoring melodies and driving momentum, and by creating a nostalgic feel through out, it turns a catchy song into an infectious one.
Radiate has been supported by Tom Robinson on 6Music and Hattie Pearson on XFM Radio recently. Bela Takes Chase has also recently supported To Kill A King in Chesham, London.
A soulful and promising introduction to Bela Takes Chase, Radiate will be available for sale and download on February 9.
