More Info

Residing now in Brighton, Bess grew up in the English countryside in a creative family of songwriters and artists. Whilst her crystalline vocals draw favourable comparisons to the likes of Marika Hackman and Julia Jacklin, her lyrics evoke an imagery that often spins from the pastoral to the abstract. Handpicked by Lucy Rose for signing to her own label Real Kind Records, tracks from the album are already on high rotation at BBC 6 music.

‘One lovely thing this is’ ; ‘She has such a deft touch’ ; ‘It’s like someone is spinning round you, wrapping your ears in ribbons... A very believable voice’ - Steve Lamacq, 6Music

Calming and cool’ ; ‘It’s a stunner… gorgeous, new Bess Atwell’ ; ‘Blissful folk rock.. Feels nostalgic, with a low key instrumentation arrangement with upfront emotional lyrics - Chris Hawkins, 6Music

Brilliant… does sound great - Huw Stephens, 6Music

‘Sublime’ ; ‘Think this is actually my favourite song of the year so far’ - Roisin O’Connor, The Guardian

‘an exquisite and delicate tribute to the insular comfort of the mundane… sublime’ - The Independent

‘One of the most exciting new voices in English folk’ - Under The Radar

‘fresh and unique’; ‘Layering each instrumental with atmospheric textures, Atwell effortlessly swoons across the cinematic pop production, leading us into a kaleidoscopic soundscape…. Shimmering - Wonderland

A startling beautiful and emotional release on her new home. - Record of the Day

‘Bess Atwell is something special. The English songwriter’s folk-textured indie pop has a quiet calm that is overwhelming, patching together gossamer melody with biting lyric’ ; ‘Her vocals resemble Lana Del Rey with a greater twist of passion, marking her as one of the most exciting young talents in English indie folk.’ - Clash

‘Bess has become a force to reckon with as she continues to put her mark on the Folk landscape. This new track is quite the stunner.’ - Music Is My Life

“There’s a mournful sense of nostalgia to Bess Atwell’s “Red Light Heaven” which draws you in and makes you want to dig up the secrets buried beneath its atmospheric garden. At once delicate and powerful, she really is a talent to be treasured.” - Songwriting Magazine
