Bella Brown & The Jealous Lovers
“What Will You Leave Behind”(Digital Out Now) / “Bang, Bang, Bang”
Label: LRK Records
Catalogue Number: LRK-19
Release Date: 26th May 2023
The new single by Bella Brown & The Jealous Lovers and B side to the new vinyl 45 release!
Right on the heels of the success of their previous single “What Will You Leave Behind”, LRK Records is proud to announce the digital single follow up by Bella Brown & The Jealous Lovers!! Bella Brown & The Jealous Lovers are a Los Angeles based, transplanted from Chicago, unit that specializes in 60s/70s soul and funk. The band is fronted by the dynamically charismatic Bella Brown. A fiery female lead singer that is a mixture of Tina Turner and Sharon Jones, with a persona that is reminiscent of the empowered female leads of 70s Blaxploitation films.
Backed by the musicianship of The Jealous Lovers they form a unit that expertly expresses a uniquely modern interpretation of the traditional soul and funk genres. Their new single is yet another extension of this ideal. “Bang, Bang, Bang” is a Stax-like uptempo comment on the frankly baffling phenomena of American gun culture. The track is delivered with a Curtis Mayfield sense of irony, but with Bella’s unique flare and attitude. A conscious Soul cut, with a funky bump!
It’s an exciting time for Bella Brown and the jealous lovers. This release is concurrent with recent chart success and radio play in the UK including the BBC, radio play from as far and wide as Brazil, Poland, Japan, Germany, France and famed US station WWOZ-New Orleans, additions on multiple playlists, and pre-sales of their vinyl 45 selling out in just two weeks!
