Bela Takes Chase is set to release her debut EP Rough Luxe on the 5th of November 2012.
Arriving on these shores from her native town of Newcastle, Australia, home to musical talents such as The Screaming Jets and Silverchair. Bela started gigging straight away and working her way through the London music scene. With her distinctive voice, remarkable set of haunting tunes, and memorable lyrics earned her immediate attention; including plays on Tom Robinson's show on Radio 6.
Her voice is currently drifting across the Balearic shores as she is the featured vocalist/co-writer on hotshot DJ/Producer Audiofun's instant classic "All For You". The late summer feeling of ennui channelled by this uplifting gem has generated over 22,000 views on YouTube, going to number 8 in club charts and featuring on both Radio 1 and Capitol dance shows.
The Rough Luxe EP features three tracks; lead single "Miles Away" an electronic, guitar haunting affair, reminiscent of the likes of Imogen Heap, Phoenix etc. Further the EP features the more acoustic sounding "Radiate" and finishes off with the folky ballad "Take What's Mine". All tracks feature Bela on vocal, guitar and piano.
