Del Bel is not a band that slows down. Since releasing the acclaimed Oneiric last year, they’ve gone on to release a remix EP and singer Lisa Conway as well as Tyler Belluz have released an EP under the name Chrome and the Ice Queen.
Now, Del Bel proper has released a new single, a duet with Conway and Bry Webb. “No Cure For Loneliness” is an even more “cinematic” song than I’ve heard since. It’s got a sultry, old-timey vibe to it with a prominent horn section. In fact, the musicians playing on it could fill at least two bands. Webb sounds like he could be a member of Del Bel any time he needs to drop in and Conway’s vocals are as expressive as always.
