Back in November, the Oakland-based soul-pop group Bells Atlas dropped the riveting, kaleidoscopic standalone single “Spec And Bubble.” Now, the band is back to thaw the mid-Winter chill with another new cut, “N C A T.”
On the track, Bells Atlas settles into a groove delivering some laid back funk with vibrant, sparkling keys and Sandra Lawson-Ndu’s beautiful vocals.
The band shares:
“Nothing Comes After This (NCAT) is about the feeling when you know a relationship has run it’s course. All of the little things have added up to something so big that they have eclipsed the light that the relationship once brought. It touches on feeling both empowered and heartbroken, because change is rarely easy.”
Going back to that whole Winter thaw thing, Bells Atlas just so happens to be in town today and apparently brought the Bay Area weather with them. Stream “N C A T” below and catch the band tonight at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2.
