Louise and the Pins return with their spellbinding new single ‘Bell Jar’ (video below), released April 9th on Chess Club. This understated ode penned by Louise Hull and produced by David Odlum, conveys a heart-rending message about love, loss and the pain of experience, Louise re-imagines the torch song for a modern audience and admits that ‘Bell Jar’ is a “very personal” track.
On the B-side there’s ‘Falsest Start’ – fleshed out by her signature backing vocalists whose dulcet tones add layers to a song which takes a more dramatic instrumental turn than its counterpart. Carried along by a slow-burning build-up and a jagged guitar solo – which peters off as the song draws to a close – it’s the perfect complement to ‘Bell Jar’.
Louise and the Pins have already made an imprint on the live scene, having played with the likes of Martha Wainwright and Laura Marling. Many touring plans are ahead of them this year including their first Headline London show on the April 4th at St Pancras Church.
