New Song: Bell X1 – ‘Starlings Over Brighton Pier’

Posted: 14/02/2013 in Uncategorized


Well, here’s a surprise of a Thursday morning! Casual as you like, Bell X1 today tweeted the following…


…and low and behold, following the link to the band’s Soundcloud profile reveals a brand new track, titled ‘Starlings Over Brighton Pier’.

We knew that a new album was in the works, for which Paul, Dave and Dominic have decamped state-side, with a not-as-yet-set summer release date. ‘Starlings Over Brighton Pier’ has just amped up my anticiapation for it in a major way.

The track was produced by Peter Katis & Thomas Bartlett, whose credits include The National and Frightened Rabbit. As a first listen, it has the same impact that ‘Hey Anna Lena’ had as a preamble to their last album 2011’s Bloodless Coup  – a new, expansive, rich  and most of all intruiging sound – but still very much the Bell X1 I know and love. Listen for yourself:
