It has been three years since BELLE GHOUL, the group formed by Christopher Tait (ELECTRIC SIX) and Jesse Smith (the daughter of Patti Smith and Fred “Sonic” Smith, of MC5), released “Songs from Other People”, a digital single consisting of three covers taken from different recording sessions, on Elefant Records. The covers included songs by Nick Drake, Harry Nilsson and the “Care Of Cell 44” that THE ZOMBIES released on their famous “Odyessey And Oracle” in 1967. This more recent cover has become the object of a new video, by the multi-disciplinary artist specialized in vintage and pin-up esthetic, Autumn Luciano (http://www.autumnluciano.com/). Luciano had worked on other BELLE GHOUL videos before, and is once again throwing herself into the arms of a song that represents the classic yet also totally unclassifiable spirit of the group from Detroit.

Stella Swoon, the pin-up model, stars in the video, which represents absence, and how hard it is to stop the feeling of needing someone who is no longer by our side. It uses super-8 textures and an oldie esthetic, right in line with the rest of Luciano’s work.

This video is also a good excuse to record the new digital single that the band self-released, “Lift Me Up” -  available via their bandcamp (https://belleghoul.bandcamp.com/album/lift-me-up) and on all the digital platforms - and to record  something new that will be released this coming September 27th, “Jonathan Turtle”. A few new songs somewhere between pop and soul, that enriches an already considerable collection of singles, and invite us to stay close to a group that is leaving fantastic songs behind them like a trail of breadcrumbs.
