Bio

Bel Air makes music. They turn you around with clever composition and inventive harmony. Crazed guitar-driven motifs that will satisfy your left ear and your right. Go to a Bel Air show and find out what’s up.

After playing St. Jerome's Laneway Festival 2014, the 18-year-olds went into a brief hibernation, picked themselves right up, went into the studio, and now they're back!

With an EP currently being written and recorded (just out of our reach), we make do with their latest single produced by Michael Belsar (Twinsy, Hunting Grounds) simply titled 'Move'. It will make you do just that.

It's an enigmatic, undeniably thumping, dance track tainted with funk and jazz. That's not to say Bel Air aren't capable of music with substance. Previous singles 'Taste', Song A' and 'Cold Trying' are anthemic journeys of catharsis.

I really like where this band have gone on this tune. It's up and it's got a juicy little groove that suckers me in.

Well constructed. Reminiscent of Little Red in the way you use bass and drums to turn an indie rock song into a dance song. It works.

I'm really liking this new one from the Bel Air boys. Funny how there's already a noticeable link in sound with these Ballarat bands. These guys are a welcome addition to the club with streaming guitar lines and a dense quality to the recording.
