Bell X1 have never been a band to rest on their laurels. Since bursting onto the music scene two decades ago the band’s appetite for restless invention has seen them embrace everything from indie rock to synth pop, new wave and electronica. Now Paul Noonan, David Geraghty and Dominic Phillips have joined forces with genre-hopping string quartet Dowry Strings to reimagine their sound, creating fresh new arrangements that set each song against a backdrop of lush, gorgeous strings. Mixing new songs with classic tracks from their astonishing back catalogue, this spellbinding collaboration showcases the lyrical playfulness and melodic brilliance that has made Bell X1 one of Ireland’s best-loved bands.
