Bio

Bells Rapids was formed in 2016 by Tanaya and Talya. Together they started jamming some of Tanaya's songs in Talya's Bassendean garage. A few months later Sara joined the team, and after a few more months Stella joined the team! Bells was a short-lived project, but together they shared some great achievements. They played the RTRFM 92.1 In The Pines event (2017), GF was RTRFM's 7th most played song (2017), AND they got to support Body Type and Jen Cloher before they parted ways. Their first and only EP (recorded at Blackbird Sound Studio with Dave Parkin in 2017) will be out August 9th via Bandcamp, and also available on spotify. We are not an active band.

Been waltzing round the office to this for the past ten minutes. Great guitar pop with the perfect mix of dreaminess and well-channeled aggression.

I love how this track balances some nicely chilled verses with the pleading "try! try!" in the chorus. Very good to have something new from this very good band.
