bellwire’s new single “Dreamin’” is a modern take on the Everly Brothers

If the chorus of Boston-based bellwire’s new single sounds familiar, it’s because it is. The classic repetition of the word “dream” comes from the Everly Brothers song “All I Have To Do Is Dream,” but that is where the similarities between these two tracks end. bellwire’s take on this song is dark, stripped down, and is more comparable to the likes of Patti Smith than the pop duo (maybe not sonically, but definitely lyrically.) Tyler Burdwood, the lead vocalist of bellwire, is currently on a solo tour with Massachusetts-based Jake McKelvie, of The Countertops. - Lilly Milman

Bellwire charms with quirky singles off upcoming album

“You got your path, oh I got mine” sings Tyler Burwood in Boston’s quartet Bellwire’s new single “Time Out.” The song, a jangly reflection speckled with vibrant guitar chords, bubbling drums, and monotone vocals, is a single off their upcoming album Dog Thoughts, which is set to be released on May 24. The album, if the singles are any indication, ranges from mellow, borderline melancholic ruminations evident in “JAKL” to spastic bouts in “Let It Shine,” (streaming below) another single with energetic guitars sputtering exuberantly into a solo where the chords stretch out and slacken the pace before dying out into feedback. A quirky aural exploration of age and relationships, Dog Thoughts seems to be shaping up to an entertaining listen. Keep tabs on Bellwire’s Facebook page for any upcoming shows and take a listen to their single below.

Show Announcement: Elephants at O'Brien's Pub September 13

This Saturday, As Built PResents & O’Brien's in Allston, MA will play host to an evening of indie-pop bliss. Boston locals Elephants will be taking the stage in support of their upcoming album release, Strange Waves. The record, which will be the group’s second, definitely reflects all of the hard work the group has put into crafting it over the past few months. Lead singer Lauren Garant appears to have mastered the art of the pop hook with the melody on the track “The Turtles Were Right”, which I was fortunate enough to get my hands on and be able to share with the fine readers of The Deli New England. So, without any further adieu, check out the link below and get ready for Saturday night!


Elephants will be joined by bellwire, Everything and Everyone and The Original Cowards. Doors are at 8PM, $8 cover for the bands and it’s 21+ (with proper ID, of course). For more info on Elephants (and to follow updates about the release of Strange Waves), check out their Facebook page.
