Rising up out of Southampton are indie four piece Bel Esprit and boy are they a hidden gem of the city. With debut EP Lose My Mind coming up, ‘Island’ is a great track to let you know what these guys have in store. A light drum beat and looming bass line open the track with a mysterious air. Deep vocals sooth while the energising guitar keeps your feet-a-tapping. They’ve got the sound that everyone is loving right now, but along with their own little spark it’s so much more than being in the right place at the right time. ‘Island’ is deeply rich and enticing, with a steady rhythm that builds to a memorable scorching guitar solo, lending the song an extra kick.
