Oakland based afro-indie-soul band Bells Atlas has just released their single “Video Star,” a song off their upcoming debut album planned to be released in February. Led by Nigerian-American songwriter Sandra Lawson-Ndu, “Video Star” really does embrace the descriptive genre of afro-indie-soul, utilizing some cool rhythms as well as the stylish voice of Lawson-Ndu. Bells Atlas uses live looping, and I also enjoy the string and mallet elements in the song. I am definitely anticipating the release of the full album, and you can also check out some of the band’s demos here. And of course, you can listen to “Video Star” below.
