Bellatrix – Still Lookin For
Bellatrix is the moniker of UK multi-instrumentalist and beatboxing world champion from 2009-2012 Bel Ehresmann. The young Londoner, who we hope took her stage name from the Orion’s star and not from the infamous character from Harry Potter’s saga, just had her first official single Still Lookin For premiered on BBC Radio 1 as part of a guest mixtape by the great NAO. The track showcases a colorful and wonderfully weird sonic palette, that blends urban R&B rhythms, bright electronic stabs and thumping drums & hand claps, reminiscent of M.I.A. and Girli. To state the obvious for an artist of this kind, lyrics are at the core of the project: “It’s about the quest to be re-united with this wild and powerful creature beneath all our layers of conditioning.”
Still Lookin For comes ahead of Bellatrix’s upcoming self-written debut EP, which was co-produced by Exmoor Emperor and it’s due out in February 2017. You can contribute to its realization here.
