LP LTD Stardust Edition:
Life, death, and a pile of 60-year-old letters provide the foundation for the new The Northern Belle album. Bats in the Attic, the band’s fifth album, cements their status as frontrunners on the nordicana scene. Simultaneously, the new material incorporates a diverse mix of styles, from Cardigans-type pop, via southern rock, to frail indie ballads. Everything executed with the musical finesse the band is known for.
After having released two successful and well-received albums during the pandemic years, without being able to tour properly, the band members’ urge to play live was intense. This drive was cultivated in the studio, where they aimed to recreate the potency of their live shows.
The Northern Belle released their self-titled debut album in 2015. The sophomore album Blinding Blue Neon (2018) was nominated for a Spellemann award (Norwegian Grammy). We Wither, We Bloom (2020) was their first international release and received praise from heavyweights such as Popmatters, American Songwriter and NPR: All Songs Considered.
