First introduced almost three years ago, Bella Loka, have a distinctive style and instantly recognisable vocal that immediately captures the listeners attention as the fourth of the eleven tracks on the LP – Go Down – exemplifies.

Abrupt switches in tempo along with the guitar powering through the speakers one moment, the next fading behind the synths, gives the song an extensive soundscape, whilst vocal delivers an expressive and expansive richness to Go Down.

In conjunction with the release of the The Light, The Mud & The Dark Tea Boothby (the singer) created an interactive multi-option video game, which has as the soundtrack clips from the LP, Colin: The Chicken & The Egg.

The Light, The Mud & The Dark is available on Amazon.*

Akin to the release title, on hitting play the listener is coated in a zingy shower of sound, as 408 deliver their tracks in which the listener finds the need to be moving alongside with the zippy drum-kit as guitars buzz through the ears.

By way of an introduction – the first of the four tracks – Charlotte.

As the notes come rolling out of the speakers, in the sixth of the ten tracks on the album (available through Triple Crown Records) – Fuck This, rather than being the snarling commentary suggested by the song title, has a distinctive merseybeat feel to it and, the listener is invited to lay in quiet repose as the warm analogue effects float through the ears.
