Capsized

by Bellehouse

For their debut full-length album Capsized, Bellehouse undeniably harkens back to classic co-fronted bands of the ‘60s: Crosby, Stills and Nash, Buffalo Springfield, the Beatles, and so on, but their modern-day feminist take often sounds more like the lovechild of Fleetwood Mac, Florence & the Machine, and Sandy Denny-era Fairport Convention. The textural line-up of strings, bows, sticks, and mallets evolves from tune to tune, as does the perceivable character of the narrator. An exciting addition to the band’s regular line up includes haunting pedal steel guitar (guest artist, Grammy-winning guitarist Greg Leisz), which drifts like a phantom amidst the lush arrangements.

Forged in the melting pot of New York City, Bellehouse wields passionate Americana soaked in Classic Rock and Celtic lore. The 6-piece band has a joyful communal energy onstage with vibrant performers who lose themselves in storytelling, carrying the audience along every step of the way. Fronted by Sarah Elizabeth Haines (viola, voice), Jess T. Clinton (guitar, voice) and Mackenzie Shivers (keys, voice), the three sirenlike songwriters weave parallel tales from seasons of personal change and wonderment of the natural world. Ryan Gross (banjo, voice), Yuka Tadano (bass), and Cody Rahn (percussion) bring sweet acoustic nuance and unshakeable rhythmic fortitude, vitalizing the color and detail of the lyrical imagery even further. It’s clear that Bellehouse is a band of dedicated friends with remarkable chemistry, giving the band a force even greater than the sum of its parts.
