The first thing I need to say about this band, is that their unique approach to writing and structuring songs combined with their expressive, dynamic range of vocals really brings something else to the table. Like a modern Radiohead with more of a sludgy pop edge. Their songs are more of a story, an emotional movement, a feeling, than a verse chorus ‘typical song’. Rosehill by Bellvue Days is entrancing, captivating, easy listening with an edge that wakes you up when you didn’t realise you were on autopilot.

Black Sheep Baby starts you off with a melodious, simple yet effective guitar line, joined by a hypnotic, inviting vocal part. The vocals have a slight electronic edge to the production, which is quite popular at the moment. The simple but strong rhythm section compliment it well. They’ve nailed the structure, offering quiet respites before building into heavier expressive sections, sneaking in subtle shouting, and vocal ah’s as textures, all these elements combined make for a really interesting, captivating song here!
