This Single is only available in digital format!!!

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

BELLE GHOUL are an unpredictable, unimaginable group, resulting from the uncontainable talents of the two main members, Christopher Tait (among many other things, keyboardist of ELECTRIC SIX) and Jesse Smith (Patti Smith’s daughter). With such big names, the mix is unpredictable, and in this case, serves to whet our appetites for their imminent 10” vinyl mini-LP, “Rabbit’s Moon & Doomsday” with this advance digital single. The single includes a remix and a previously unreleased song that lets the group’s electronic background - something they haven’t shown so openly so far - run wild.

But the main song, included in the upcoming mini-LP, is a perfect example of soul and pop, with the lyrical forms of Sam Cooke and the musical influences of THROWING MUSES and XTC. The result is one their most significant hits to date. And as for the remix, DUBAI BROS (another of Christopher’s projects) are in charge and they put an important twist on “Lakes Of Fire”. It’s an unimaginable leap forward for the group’s sound, darker and more danceable, with echoes of KRAFTWERK and LIQUID LIQUID. Then there’s “Devoir (Imaginary Theme)”, which is a landscapey, instrumental song where the keyboard pads make room for evocation in a new unusual and unexpected example of the group’s abilities.

It’s just a taste of what’s to come from what is probably going to be one of the most important releases in BELLE GHOUL’s career, which, given the evidence, still has so much more to give us. Savour it all as it comes.

Track Name: Around For The Weekend
Everyone here waits around for the weekend
Everybody here's coming down for the weekend
Working those gears 'til the day's never-ending
Only three more 'til we get to the weekend

"One of these days they'll get what they got comin'
One of these days we're really gonna show 'em"
Ain't it just great how it all never changes?
Nothing I can do, sit and pray for the weekend

It's never if not today
Everything's not okay
And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today

Finally here never thought I would see it
Everyone's near, rally up & let's beat it
Something ain't right with the shit I was given
Matthew's out back and it looks like he's tripping

(Hold on, hold on, 'cause you're never gonna be alone)

Something ain't right in the disco casino
Internet spies in my mind on a reload
World's gonna end better get to the weekend
Sweet sentiment - "kill yourself for the weekend"

It's never if not today
Everything's not okay
And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today

Everyone here waits around for the weekend
Everyone here waits around for the weekend

It's never if not today
Everything's not okay
And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today
(Tomorrow waits, but we'll always have today)
And tomorrow awaits, but we'll always have today
Track Name: Lakes Of Fire (Dubai Bros. Remix)
I told you bout the good and the evil
I told you bout the lakes of fire
I told you bout the good and the evil

Hey you want it, hey don't you want it?

Which one's sitting over your shoulder
Which one could you do without
Which one when the sky's splitting open

Hey you want it, hey don't you want it?
Hey you want it, hey don't you want it?!
Hey you want it, hey cause the price you pay
On judgement day
Ha ha

I told you bout the good and the evil
I told you bout the lakes of fire
I told you bout the good and the evil
Which one could you do without

Which one's using you as a vessel
Which one is behind your eyes
Which one's gonna come to collect it

Hey you want it, hey don't you want it?
Hey you want it, hey don't you want it?!
Hey you want it, hey cause on judgement day
Whose price you pay

Lakes of fire (when there's nobody around you)
Lakes of fire (tell me which will surround you)
Lakes of fire (cause it's already in me)
Hey you want it, hey don't you want it

Lakes of fire (when you go to pay the piper)
Lakes of fire (when the lights are going out here)
Lakes of fire (cause you never believed me)
Hey you want it, hey don't you want it
Track Name: Devoir (Imaginary Theme)
Instrumental
