Song of the Week: “Well” by Belleville

by Douglas Cowie on 24 August 2018

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “Well” by Belleville:

I first encountered Belleville several years ago when I saw them play at the now-called-something-else Barfly in Camden. It’s been a long wait for a new record from them, and their Bandcamp page explains why. Belleville mix their jangly guitar and country influences with a pinch of punk swagger where they need it, and they leave the swagger out where it isn’t called for on the slower prettier numbers. With “Well,” you get a little bit of everything in less than three minutes. You can listen to the full album on Bandcamp and Spotify. It’s called Sometimes I Exaggerate.
