LIVE REVIEW: Belle Mare @ Rockwood Music Hall

Belle Mare“We can wait for love”, but we can’t wait for Belle Mare. Rockwood Music Hall’s three-stage architecture makes it beyond strenuous to commit to a single artist/band. Upon hearing her debut to CMJ, yearning to see this London beaut is an understatement. To find a classic sound, not too dry or drawn-out, is a difficult find. However, Amelia Bushell does it right, along with her four band members and fellow song-writer, Thomas Servidone. Right here in our garden of Brooklyn, the fans are sprouting by the minute; and I can see why. Bushell is something special, with a shadowy but far from faint voice.
At first the room is half empty, but as she picks up her tambourine, like a trigger, bodies are padding up the room. Her vintage sound is beyond awe. Surprise, surprise! She plays for us a new song. Is Belle Mare coming out with a new EP just in time for the holidays? Their tour dates in Brooklyn in the spring give me some optimism. Since last year’s debut The Boat of the Fragile Mind, the duo have taken that sail into the realm of open mics and now venues and shows. Her presence suggested a bit of shyness, looking mostly into the mic and her guitar picking. Like their own “Charade,” as her voice kindles the room-trust me- you are going to see this wondrous daydreaming pop pair more often.
