Belle and Sebastian

Led by guitarist/vocalist Stuart Murdoch, Belle & Sebastian has an intimate, majestic sound that is equal parts folk-rock and '60s pop. Murdoch has a gift for not only whimsy and surrealism, but also for odd, unsettling lyrical detail which keeps the songs grounded in a tangible reality. Based in Glasgow, Scotland, the seven-piece band released their first two albums in 1996, sparking off an indie-pop revival in the country.

Led by guitarist/vocalist Stuart Murdoch, Belle & Sebastian has an intimate, majestic sound that is equal parts folk-rock and '60s pop. Murdoch has a gift for not only whimsy and surrealism, but also for odd, unsettling lyrical detail which keeps the songs grounded in a tangible reality. Based in Glasgow, Scotland, the seven-piece band released their first two albums in 1996, sparking off an indie-pop revival in the country. The first of those two albums, Tigermilk, had been written and recorded for a University project, making their initial success all the more impressive. Through their first two years of public existence, the band shielded their personalities, submitting publicity photos featuring a girl that wasn't in the band (a move clearly inspired by The Smiths) and reluctantly posing for photo shoots. They eventually came to mainstream attention when, with the aid of a campaign led by several notable radio stations and magazines, they pulled off the biggest upset in the history of the Brit Awards by beating Steps to the Best New Artist gong in 1998. The band have continued to release modestly successful, critically acclaimed albums ever since, with Murdoch also finding time for a side project in the shape of God Help the Girl. « hide
