This recent offering by Southampton 4 piece indie rock band Bel Esprit starts gently. Before drifting into the bands more familiar, guitar layered, energetic sound.
This Southampton based ensemble is a vehicle to bring further to life songs that Dan O’Farrell has been performing acoustically for a year or 2.
This Romeo and Juliet inspired sing-along was a highlight of their recent live gig at Southampton’s Art House.
Another Shakespeare quote is very apt for this song.
Lorenzo from The Merchant of Venice:
Here will we sit and let the sounds of music Creep in our ears: soft stillness and the night Become the touches of sweet harmony”
You can’t beat a combination of traditional indie rock with very clever lyrics. That’s what you get from Southampton band Shy Boy. This is a taster of their latest EP, Here’s to Hoping, which drops on Friday 11th March.
