Bell's Roar has announced that they will play the Treefort Music Fest the day before playing a live set as part of Moogfest's Always On live stream focused on female, non-binary, and trans performers. Bell's Roar is thrilled to share their incredibly colorful, prideful "Celebrate" video. This is the second taste we've heard of their blissful, empowering debut album "We Carry Us", a 10-song manifesto out January 12, 2018 that infuses dream pop with R&B and dance hues.
In the "Celebrate" video, Sean's partner Alisa Sikelianos-Carter can be seen dancing around the Albany plaza in a vivid outfit, her motions and the music screaming that those in oppressed communities should never let society silence them. Be yourself, and be proud of yourself, always. Stand up. Fight back.
Check out the video right HERE.
Thematically, the video and song are consistent with bell's roar's main message; one could say that supporting their community from within is their trademark. Case in point is their Art Funds Art Tour, which launches February 1. It takes the profits from ticket sales and distributes them into artist grants and performance stipends to underfunded queer and trans artists of color in each of the cities it visits; it begins in Albany and travels all the way down to Atlanta over the course of 12 days. Check out the list of dates below.
