The new album from my favorite Irish rockers Bell X1 is fast approaching and the first single release is now here. "Velcro" is the first single from the upcoming "Bloodless Coup", out in the U.S. April 12 on Yep Roc Records. Those who were lucky enough to catch the band's acoustic tour last year were treated to a stripped down version of this one. A killer buzzy keyboard and bass line drive the studio version along before a big conclusion. Another great track from Paul Noonan and company.
Here are the videos for both "Velcro" and another track from the new album, "Hey Anna Lena", that leave me very anxious for "Bloodless Coup". Bell X1 made a breakthrough in the States with their last release, "Blue Lights On The Runway" and the hit "The Great Defector". I'm liking the direction of these new tracks even more than 'Blue Lights' and I was a huge fan of that record to begin with. Top notch.
