Without the possibility of in-person workshops, coupled with the general cabin fever creatives have been experiencing, there’s been a slight surge in shared songwriting prompts. California-native-turned-Austinite Noëlle Hampton, knows this all too well, and has put some of them to good use propelling her already prolific quintet The Belle Sounds.
The Belle Sounds have kept their promise to release a new single each month, having squeezed in their eighth single just last Friday, one prefaced by the prompt, “Tag, you’re it!”, and inspired by a near death experience from Hampton’s own childhood. “Take The Dare” lyrically tackles peer pressure and bullying over an incandescent instrumental, one that’ll make you want to revisit this track again and again.
