1910 E. Cesar Chavez St.
Austin-based indie artist Emily Bell is back – and this time with a captivating new sound. “Goddess of Destruction,” Bell’s new single, is set for digital release on Jan. 27, followed by a three-week residency on Feb. 2, Feb. 16 and March 1 at Austin’s Stay Gold located at 1910 E. Cesar Chavez St. The shows start at 9 p.m. with no cover. For more information, see http://staygoldaustin.com.
“Goddess of Destruction” was produced by Bell, John Evans and Steve Christensen, and engineered by Christensen. It was recorded at the famed Sugar Hill Studios in Houston as part of Bell’s upcoming EP, for which release plans will soon be announced. The single is a bold lyrical and musical turn for Bell, one that sets the tone for her new direction and artistry.
“We all get that overwhelming desire to destroy something, however big or small it may be,” said Bell. “By nature, we are destructive creatures. We have to destroy the thing we are trying to change. We have to burn the land to have new growth.”
With that theme in mind, it comes as no surprise Bell has drastically re-imagined her new direction, including her new band, The Talkbacks, with long time partner John Evans taking lead on guitar, Sam Powell on the keyboard and Anthony Pummill on drums.
“More than ever, this has been a big group effort. My goal from the beginning this time was to create a mainstay. The people I would work and play with for the unforeseeable future. We all have ownership in this, we are all here for the same goals. John, Sam, Anthony and I have poured a lot into this and we are just ready to get out there.”
