On the hunt for never ending synth sounds and lady harmonies, belladon has been a band for just over a year and has been embraced by the san diego community rather quickly. With only two singles out they have already been nominated for a san diego music award for best new artist. they were featured on “a red trolly show” (sponsored by karl strauss brewing co.) have had radio support from rock 105.3 for local spotlight and from 91x for their single releases. They recently were invited to 4th street recording (artist such as mick fleetwood, the beach boys, and alice cooper are past clientele) to record their next single, carnival. They have been a featured artist on Women Who Rock (ig: womenwhorock), and Treble Zine (www.treblezine.com), a musical blog based out of San Diego.
Belladon is a 5 piece synthpop band from San Diego founded by Aimee Jacobs (former synth player and second lead vocalist of the Burning of Rome). She started the group with Anastasya Korol at the San Diego Music and Art Cooperative. Both women sing lead and play synth, focusing on harmonies between the vocals and their synthesizers. Heather nation is the lead guitarist and third vocalist whose guitar playing ranges from fuzzy riffs, etherial scapes, and tasteful guitar solos. The groups rhythm section is drummer Billy Petty and Alex Bravo on bass; friends who have played together for seven years prior to the bands founding. Belladon stands out for their three part female harmonies and weaving synth melodies. They create beautiful vocal lines paired with synth motifs and heavy, sometimes spastic rhythms. As a live band they are alluring and dramatic. With such a large sound, they immerse their audience leaving behind a penetrating intensity.
