Belle Histoire -Cincinnati, OH / Nashville, TN
Thatâ€™s it, 2011 is officially the year of the female artist.Â I cannot take it anymore, too many talented women to choose from.Â Belle Histoire are yet again another female fronted indie slanted rock outfit.Â I refuse to make a comparison to any of our other featured artists.Â Letâ€™s just say that they have remnants of Mumford and Sons musically but her vocals have a Natalie Merchant connectivity to the song, (You see what I did? Neither of these are DU bands). Â The writing has depth and vision; itâ€™s one of those things you enjoy about a song and you forget to pay attention to but with Belle Histoire you are drawn into the story of the song and the emotion attached to the words. Â Its visual and the music is all encompassing, their song â€œSpiritsâ€ is a prime example of this.Â I found myself singing the hook and therein layâ€™s my test, the hook served its purpose. I think I have reviewed about 5 or 6 bands with females in it that are simply bad ass.Â We here at Daily Unsigned are staunch supporters of the female artist, so now I say, â€œLilith Fair, give us a Daily Unsigned stage!!!!â€ Or, at least put me in touch with Sarah McLachlan, sheâ€™s dreamy.
