The twentysomething, Texas native’s résumé is already extensive. She’s worked under the likes of Giorgio Moroder (Daft Punk) & David Hodges (Kelly Clarkson, 5 Seconds of Summer) and has written songs for Natalie Imbruglia and The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue. Her music has also been featured on commercials and television shows, Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars. Momentum has been building for BeLL, but it was two months ago when her star started shine extremely brightly.
In September, she shared a haunting, sultry cover of R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion”, which shot up to the top of the Hype Machine charts. Today, she will seek to reflect her success with her new, original single, “Bang Bang (Remember My Name)”, which she is releasing in its entirety today in this premiere.
Television fanatics, particularly those of ABC dramas, may recognize the song, as it has been used in the second trailer of the channel’s forthcoming, new series, Famous In Love, which stars Bella Thorne (release date April 2017). This glimpse of “Bang Bang (Remember My Name)” tells you everything you need to know about it – cinematic, dramatic, and heart-stopping. This is dark-pop at its finest – a song that will stop you dead in your tracks as the music soars and BeLL’s thunderous lyrics pierce deep in your soul.
Not surprisingly, the young singer-songwriter had to reach deep inside her to write this song. As she shares:
The song was written from a dark, raw place. It stems from a false sense of power you desperately grab at when someone you love no longer loves you back. You know they’re already gone, but you’re so blinded by your own pain that getting the last word in feels like the only way to get your power back in the moment.
The lyric video and the audio versions are provided below. Take a listen and bookmark BeLL’s name in your music library because you will surely being here more from her.
