    Bell X1 Acoustic

    Bell X1's central trio of Paul Noonan, Dave Geraghty, and Dominic Phillips penned every song on their latest record, "Blue Lights on the Runway." Leader Noonan said, "We started recording last November in a big, draughty, stately home called Ballycumber House, under the beady gaze of musty portraits of the Lords and Ladies of the estate from the 15th century.

    Bell X1's central trio of Paul Noonan, Dave Geraghty, and Dominic Phillips penned every song on their latest record, "Blue Lights on the Runway." Leader Noonan said, "We started recording last November in a big, draughty, stately home called Ballycumber House, under the beady gaze of musty portraits of the Lords and Ladies of the estate from the 15th century. We wanted to make something different, something tight and coherent from start to finish. Where we've landed is a little bit electronic, a little bit Bacharach, a little bit New Orleans Funeral March." Bell X1 recall Eno-era Talking Heads, Sigur Ros, and XTC on jagged, vintage synth-laden "Broken Umbrella," the syncopated "How Your Heart Is Wired," fuzzed out hard rocker "Breast Fed," the electrifying "The Great Defector," and gorgeous ballad "Light Catches Your Face." New York Daily News' Jim Farber wrote, "It's not just [Paul] Noonan's sharp eye in these songs that proves winning. It's also his flair for dialogue and his keen way with a metaphor. His cruel writing will make you swoon."
