Our 6th Tip for 2013 is the admirable Bela Takes Chase, a singer-songwriter based in London but born in Newcastle, Australia – the same town to home The Screaming Jets and Silverchair, though clearly not of the same genre.
Supplying a whisky slurred Stevie Nicks drawl to the world of pop, her path heads in the same direction as Ellie Goulding before looping back on itself to visit the chosen territory of Frou Frou and Bjorn. Documented on her incredibly debut EP Rough Luxe, though still unsigned this one woman band has got what it takes to cross the road into the mainstream without compromising her solid production and musicianship. Pimped by Music Week, Milkshakes and Moustaches and the Von Pip Express as having “much more substance to her work than merely banging out camp Euro disco anthems”, she’s unarguably the lady to go to if you’re looking for electro pop with a bit of bite.
