Bella Koshka: Slow Dancing on the Ocean Floor

A Celtic mist must have hanging over Minnesota when Bella Koshka recorded their Slow Dancing on the Ocean Floor album. Gut heavy bass lines and intermittent guitar fills undercut the eerie vocals and violin of this Minnesota band whose music that is best described as lullabies for an adult audience.

They would have been signed on the spot by 4AD in the eighties, as it stands they have to go the DIY route which won't be problem with the female front line that oozes music from every pore.

Bella Koshka:
Hilary Davis: violin, keyboards, programming, samples, bells
Laura Boland: vocals, stories
Matte Franklin: drums, found objects
Matt Vannelli: guitars, efx
Tim Ritter: bass guitar
