Bellows shares “Spring Summer Autumn Winter”

Bellows shares new video for "Spring Summer Autumn Winter."

Bellows is the bedroom-recording project of songwriter and producer Oliver Kalb. Started in late 2010 in a dorm room at Bard College, Bellows has gone from a solo recording experiment into a rock band, employing the help of The Epoch collective to bring Kalb’s intimate home recordings to life on stage. The live band features Gabrielle Smith (Eskimeaux), Felix Walworth (Told Slant) & Henry Crawford (Small Wonder).

Bellows’ sophomore record, Blue Breath, was recorded over the course of three years, in five bedrooms across the country, and was released in 2014 by Dead Labour. The record was recorded by layering dozens of strange sounds over would-be humble folk songs, the result being a soaring pop record that treads the line between minuscule and gigantic.

Bellows’ latest release, Fist & Palm, marks a change in Kalb’s sound. Mixed by Jack Greenleaf (Eskimeaux, Sharpless), the record experiments with aggressive sequenced drums and electronic sounds, taking its influence as much from contemporary pop as it does from early 2000’s Pacific-Northwest lo-fi. Fist & Palm is available via Double Double Whammy.
