New Track: Belleruche – “Afan” + MP3

 

London electro-pop trio Belleruche tickles us so. Remember their awesome video for “Stormbird?” We do.

Now with their recent release of Rollerchain, the group is offering a free download of the playful album track “Afan.” A little spooky, a little bouncy, and a little mellow – the song takes us back to the mood of some of our favorite tunes by The XX.

“Stormbird” is the new single from UK group, Belleruche and above is their glowy smoke-filled video for the bouncy soft-toned track.

Their upcoming album, Rollerchain, is due in May and will feature a “collision of haunting vocals, aggressive analogue sounds and bleeding edge electronic production.” We can most definitely get down with that.

Belleruche: “Fuzz Face” Music Video

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/ntonFtX4Fpo" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

This uniquely distorted video for Belleruche‘s second single, “Fuzz Face,” is from their new album, 270 stories, which was released earlier this month via Tru Thoughts.  The video spins the faces of the band members through a weird process of digital and analogue distortion.  The frames (all 4500 of them) were then put through old photocopiers throughout England, thus giving each member a trippy “Fuzz Face.”
