Are Bella Figura Just A 'Demon In The Dark'?
Catching our attention recently, U.K. three-piece Bella Figura - Justin Gartry, Mikey Cooper and Jack Morford - made quite the impression with the broody introspection of their emotively arresting 'heavy grooves'. Channeling the turbulent emotion that life's vicissitudes can churn and roil into the gritty riffs and bold drums of their poignantly-inflected heavy-rock, the three-piece showcased a keen instinct for articulating the insecurities, fears and regrets that haunt us all. Informing a deeply poetic lyricism with the husky, raw urgency of his emotionally expressive voice, Gartry's sonorous vocal gravitas came enveloped in the sway and swell of soundscapes that grew from spare intricacies into the rousing crash of guitar and drums. Returning with 'Demon In The Dark' ahead of their upcoming U.K. tour, Bella Figura again showcase the fragile intimacy and profound insight of their absorbing sound as Garty grapples with the ambiguity and vulnerability associated with an uncertain love.
