“… an uplifting dose of raw emotion…”
Following their enigmatic debut single Hollow, Belle Mt. (pronounced ‘Belle Mont’) are now back with another emotion-strewn release. Let Me is out now via LV Music and available to stream on Spotify and iTunes.
You can also watch Belle Mt. performing his previous single Hollow live for a Mahogany Session on YouTubenow.
Written about that breaking point in a relationship when all emotional truths are laid bare, Let Me is an uplifting slice of alt-pop. Filled with the impassioned, soaring vocals of lead singer Matt Belmont, it exudes a cinematic, evocative power and infectious musicality. Of the track, Belle Mt. explain: “… despite the emotional weight of the topic, with Femke’s uplifting production of Let Me we’ve attempted to envelop some deeply personal lyrics in an energetic and almost anthemic sound, but if you dig a little deeper you’ll still find the melancholy beneath.”
The concept of Belle Mt. was created during a period of Belmont’s withdrawal from public performances. During this time, he dedicated his time to introspective songwriting development, creating the basis of a sound which would eventually find its way into the hands of Nashville-based, Grammy Award winning producer Femke Weidema. The musical connection between the pair has resulted in a unique writing and production style, evident in the layered ambience and depth of this latest release.
Now, having received acclaim from the likes of Mahogany and When The Horn Blows, and packed out a Nashville industry showcase at The Basement, as well as playing a Sofar Sounds set at London’s Amnesty International HQ this summer, Belle Mt. are ready to pull at the heartstrings with the impassioned grace of Let Me.
