Belle and Sebastian
Before Mumford and Sons were the favourite band of white people, before Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver were the coffee shop music of choice…there were Belle and Sebastian. They are not a Britpop band, nor is it easy to lump them into a particular musical category (although I’m going to do that). They use a lot of vocal harmonies and surreal melodies, they don’t generally smash up their gear after playing a great show, and at some point they became an important part of independent music in Scotland and the world. Recording memorable albums, playing shows and festivals around the world, Belle and Sebastian have done things their way. Welcome to a site dedicated to bringing you an insight into one of the most underrated bands of the last twenty years.
