No Strings Attached
BELLAJANE are a four piece band from Dublin consisting of SarahJane (Vocals/Piano), Shane Holly (Guitar), Graham Heaney (Bass) and Dennis Cassidy (Drums). They met whilst attending the New Park School of Jazz in Dublin in 2008. Lilting female vocals combined with challenging arrangements and rhythmic shifts have seen BellaJane compared to Tori Amos, Fiona Apple and Joan As Policewoman. Their sound is described as quirky pop that "lulls the listener, sucks them in.. then switches the dynamic just as you start to get comfortable" (Connected Magazine) as well as having the ability to "effortlessly veering from sultry, Parisian cabaret inspired vignettes to introspective, lush takes on loss and uncertainty, all the while keeping ears focused and toes tapping." (Death Via Satellite Press release) They were also featured in The Ticket as Jim Carroll's ones to watch, with him saying: 'BellaJane push all the right buttons with their well-appointed indie-rock with folk frills.'
