New Music - Norabelle

Norabelle are a band I've picked up on from the wonderful 2 U I Bestow blog, in that they featured in the end of year review of the site's favourite lps.

The band are a 3 piece from Ireland who describe themselves as a minimalist folk band. The songs are built around hushed vocals and harmonies, with piano , acoustic guitar and brushed drums. The whole thing is beautifully put together and is captivatingly haunting. It is quietly hypnotic and well worth a listen.

If you don't believe me here is a track from their lp Wren

Ghost - Norabelle

You can get a free download of the lp here and there are some downloads form an ep you can buy here


  1. Thanks for the 'heads up'.
    Downloaded (freeloader me) and like it a lot; fragile, delicate and very pretty.
    But, why are they giving it away?

  2. It is strange - if any thing you would have thought they would have made the ep tracks fee as a lead in to buying the lp.

    The only thing I can think of is that they are playing a long game ie build exposire , fan base, live following , profile with the free lp and then hope that you then keep them in pace for when the 2nd comes out
