"This duo makes nothing short of stunningly beautiful minimal rock. It's almost impossible not to be charmed by singer Kay Gillette's warm, intimate vocals." -Pete Kearns
Bella Ruse's combination of airy folk and crunchy pop transforms rooms into secret gardens and paints pictures of invading bombardiers, salty sea love, and super glued hearts. Surrounded by a laboratory of instruments - typewriter, suitcase organ, glockenspiel, and kazoos - singer Kay Gillette's antique voice and Joseph Barker's mournful guitar twist and twirl and dip and dive and carry you deep down the rabbit-hole into their magical musical world.
They've been traveling the country in a van powered by vegetable oil for two years, opening for Sarah Mclachlan, Heart, and Hey Marseilles along the way. Their songs have been heard on MTV and Showtime and their most recent album, KUHZOO, spent eight weeks on the CMJ Radio Top 200. They were the Needle in the Haystack artist on MTVmusic.com and Performer Magazine calls Gillette's voice 'truly unique.'
"My request for the band is simple: more, please. More blood, sweat, tears, booze, ultra- lights, magic fairy dust or WHATEVER combination birthed this beauty." -Lara Crombie, WeHeartMusic.com
