The newly formed London based trio Bella Figura gave us a heavy and resonant set of 30 minutes to whet our appetites. The three members, Justin Gartry (Guitar & Vocals), Mikey Cooper (Bass & Vocals) and Rhys Maslen (Drums & Vocals) met studying music production, and are all multi-instrumentalists.
There is a simplicity to their songs and their often slow pace creates a deliberate and powerful edge. Never Learn was such a moment, Garty stood alone in the dark, a single man in a landscape of telegraph straight trees. The darkened earth on which he stood was gouged and pounded by Bella Figura, the air haunted by the call of Rhys Maslen on vocals.
