Belle and Sebastian - See Award-winning Septet Live in 2016
Led by front man Stuart Murdoch, this collection of Scottish musicians have been lighting up the British music scene since the 1990s, developing a nine album discography packed with shimmering, poetic indie pop. Clever lyrics within critically acclaimed tracks such as 'Piazza, New York Catcher' and 'The Party Line' have captured the band a cult fan base, making their back catalogue something of a must-hear for serious music lovers. Unsurprisingly, 2015 album Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance was as brilliantly received as ever, with singles 'The Party Line', 'Nobody's Empire' and 'The Cat With The Cream' typically gorgeous melodies with deeply personal wordplay.
In summer 2016, the Scottish septet perform a string of special dates at London's majestic Royal Albert Hall. Don't miss out on your chance to see them perform live. Pick up Belle and Sebastian tickets now on StubHub.
Belle and Sebastian - Scotland's High Brow Indie Pop Pioneers
In the mid-1990s, Glaswegian singer songwriters Stuart Murdoch and Stuart David co-founded Belle and Sebastian, naming the outfit after a French novel by Cecile Aubrey. Inspired by a plethora of touchstones, from Jean Luc Goddard movies to the discographies of Nick Drake, Rod Steward and The Velvet Underground, the band set about creating their own bespoke brand of indie inflected chamber pop. Their early demos impressed their college record label Electric Honey so much that they quickly endorsed the making of the band's debut album Tigermilk (1996).
Released just several months after their debut, sophomore effort If You're Feeling Sinister swiftly became the subject of enormous critical acclaim. It's counted by Pitchfork as one of the best albums of the 1990s and is also included in the music reference book 1001 Albums to Hear Before You Die. To this day, front man Stuart Murdoch maintains that the album is his best collection of songs. It contains the band's greatest lament, 'The Fox in the Snow', inspired by the nineteenth century painting by French realist Gustave Courbet.
The band's third LP The Boy with the Arab Strap landed in the UK charts at number 12 in 1998, earning them a BRIT Award for Best Newcomer. After a period of lineup changes, the band signed with Rough Trade Records, producing a more accessible sound with their Ivor Novello and Mercury Prize nominated album Dear Catastrophe Waitress, which included storytelling chorales like 'Piazza, New York Catcher'.
Returning in 2015, the band released their ninth album Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance, which peaked at number nine in the UK charts. One of the most respected indie outfits out there, the septet play a string of special shows at the Royal Albert Hall in 2016, revisiting songs from the breadth of their 30-year career. Now's the perfect time to get Belle and Sebastian tickets on StubHub.
