After breaking through last year with her stunning efforts ‘Bed‘, ‘Kiss You‘, ‘Harmless Fun‘, “awkward pop” pioneer Belot is kicking off her new year in style as she delivers the pumping new anthem ‘Math’.
Continuing the same rich and vibrant alt-pop direction she has curated for herself so far, ‘Math’ is a fun and intoxicating return from an artist always looking for the next big move to make. Filled with glittering production, lively hooks, and her own mesmerising voice at the helm, it already feels like 2022 will be her most impactful year to date.
Belot will make her live debut on March 17th supporting Dora Jar at London’s Lafayette.
Speaking about the new release, Belot said, “Math is about the struggle of not wanting a serious relationship in your youth. You are entangled with this person and you care about them, but you just can’t find it in you, to settle down quite yet.”
Belot is a 22-year-old songwriter based in London, who is about to unleash her own distinct brand of cheeky, honest, vulnerable pop music onto planet earth.
Brought up in North London, living with her Mum and older brother, she was surrounded by music from a young age with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, The Beach Boys and Al Green being regularly played in the house. She’s always naturally gravitated to music, and would write songs in the bath as early as she can remember. By the age of 8, she was teaching herself guitar in a quest to put her bath time warblings into some sort of construct. Aged 12 Belot had progressed to a laptop and recording, using Logic. Music was clearly the place she felt she could best express her emotions. She fluked her way into the Brit School at the age of 14 and throughout her time there she started to formulate her own vision of the sort of music she wanted to make and how she wanted to be perceived as an artist.
Her musical journey continued – soaking up music of The Strokes, Phoenix, Andy Shauf, Flume, Alt J, Metronomy, early Kanye West, and the aggressive dubstep of Kill The Noise.
“I love pop. Always have! And I’m not afraid to say it,” she exclaims. “I think for me, a pop song is something that is going to be so catchy it hurts. I’m going to wake up in the middle of the night and it’ll still be stuck in my head.”
From hereon in, at the quietest moments of the day and night, Belot is set to be your companion, shaking up your life and providing something unique, and truly addictive.
