“The demo of this song was actually created back in 2010 and I wrote each of the verses at different times over the last six years,” shares Belle. “In the first verse I’m talking about the existence of God, the second is about discovering who he is, and the third verse says, ‘I only got what I can give away,” which is something I’m learning, slowly, as I get older.”
The Chicago songwriter has now made Los Angeles his home. All the vibrant life that Belle has discovered since moving to L.A. has inspired much of the work on his new record.
While Los Angeles played a key role in Belle’s new album, his musical influences are also quite notable. Inspired by artists such as Radiohead, James Blake, David Bazan, Beach House, and Bon Iver — Belle holds an affinity towards music on the alt R&B / electronic side of the spectrum. With is colorful palette of soulful croons and electronic prowess, Belle is well on his way to joining the ranks of his influencers. HIs new song “You” invites you into its susepensful world of sonic pleasure, while his prior released single “Dive Deep” boasts a captivating intimacy. If the two songs are a sign of what’s to come on Belle’s new album, fans have a lot to be excited for.
