The sound of BELLFLOWER, led by singer-songwriter Em Pompa, is one that is rare, rich and powerful. Driven by the soul and ingenuity of eight elite musicians, it conveys a sense of soft vastness that absorbs the listener, of quiet strength born of an enduring union. While neither quite orchestral pop nor alternative folk, the ensemble’s music unfolds somewhere between the hybrid and aerial jazz of Cinematic Orchestra and the seductive complexity of Sufjan Stevens’ neo-pop.
