BELLA LOKA is a duo from England, I will come back to explore more fully at a later date.



A new song Go Down, which features piano and is a different arrangement and feel to their more normal electronic dance warmth, serves as a good introduction to BELLA LOKA as it marks out their wider range of style and the root of the compositions – not usually in evidence.

The lead track on the album is Green Screen.

The release date of Thran is significant of an anniversary for Gordon and his family. It was in 1914 that the families Steam Drifter was launched as a fishing vessel Duthies – and on the 25th October 1940 that the renamed HMT Duthies – now a naval trawler after having been requestioned by the Navy during the Second World War was sunk, with no casualties, in Montrose.
