Belle Isle is On Fire

Gold Standard Laboratories

Only four songs, but you know there’ll be more soon. Coming straight outta the ashes of The Starlite Desperation, singer Dante White grabbed guitarist Jennifer Pearl and more recently, Starlite bassist Yasmine Smith, and created this old school gritty garage dirt rock band that pulls on the blues and gives you blood. There’s a bit of the psychedelic ’60s floating around in here, with the groovy shakin’ tambourine style go-go guitar and the hip swing of the bass and drums, but the energy and fire that flies through the speakers is definitely right now.
