London based band Belle Mt. are back with their Warner Records debut EP The Water. Belle Mt. is fronted by songwriter/frontman Matt Belmont as well as Chris Burgess, and Ben Worsley. The band first burst into the music scene in 2017/2018 with the release of the debut EP Volume 1. It was shown so much support and appeared on New Music Friday Playlists around the world and garnered over 30 million streams. At the time the band was unsigned and self managed, until they gained recognition from some of the most prominent figures in the music industry. They went on tour in Europe with Grammy nominated KALEO and performed at SXSW as well. They were clearly already making a name for themselves.
Having recently released the single “This Kind of Heavy” they are now preparing to release a new body of work in The Water EP. On the four-song set it lyrically channels both the unrelenting chaos and comforting quiet that comes when relationships break down. The lead single “This Kind of Heavy” is an emotional one that touches on suffering the loss of a friend, based on a real experience in Matt’s life. “All We Are” has a more happy disposition and a track you could see yourself blasting in the car driving at night, but the lyrics contrast that and are rather dark, “If this is all we are, a collection of mistakes and homegrown scars”. “Cannonball” is another upbeat track that features more cinematic qualities, it really showcases just how versatile the band really is. The EP closes out with the title track “The Water” which is probably the more emotional and mellow track on the album, that really showcases Matt’s warm vocals. It’s a truly raw and authentic track that starts off in a somber tone but bursts into a cinematic masterpiece halfway through, really making you feel like you’re on top of the world, or like you’re in a movie. The band knocked it out of the park with this EP, it’s raw, emotional, inspiring and leaves you wanting more. Belle Mt. continues to show how versatile and vulnerable they are and that’s what makes them so great. We can’t wait to hear more from them in the future!
