Dublin’s atmospheric indie trio Bell X1 create funny and intelligent music that makes you want to dance, fall in love, and maybe even cry a little bit. Their sonic science ranges from slow, even synth and drum rock to dreamy, hook-laden pop beats. Though crisp and catchy melodies are driving forces that could possibly define them, what fans seem to like most is the band’s intensely energetic live shows that exude comfort across the globe. Good, sensible pop rock never goes wrong…when you know how to do it right.
