"Apocalypse WOW! has just been released, with the promise of shining light in the darkest depths of this cruel world, BUT O! the beauty of the people within it! It’s the juxtaposition of the inevitable — death, sadness, loss — with the will to rage against them that makes Bella’s Bartok’s latest offering so irresistible. Our rage doesn’t take the form of anger or bitterness. It’s the rage of stubbornly holding onto a moment of happiness even in the darkest moments. By the time the album ends, you will be cleansed, you'll be able to stare into the abyss of hopelessness and despair, and choose hope.
Spread that fire of joy unto others and take a little bit of us home with you, for your listening pleasure. The inevitable end may be rather nigh, but together, we have only just begun.
Hearts and stars,
“Live your fantasy and embrace the stranger side of life with Bella’s Bartok. A band known for raucous theatrical performances and an outspoken political message of finding hope in a world beset by cruel uncertainty. With utter joy, they seamlessly blend a rich cacophony of sound and soul into their music with influences ranging from Punk to Folk and Pop to Americana. Let your freak flag fly high, fiercely and free, throw your societal inhibitions to the wayside and seek comfort in the warm sonic embrace of Bella’s Bartok. We are the night and you are bound to boogie.”
Floors may be broken but hearts will be mended.
