Aged just nineteen, Bel Holiday has already spent a decade honing her craft and pursing her passion for music. Influenced by the likes of Lady Gaga among many others, she admits that she is “ever evolving and always able to draw inspiration from other artists”, and has graced the stages of several prestigious venues such as the Saint and The Highline Ballroom. Just weeks after dropping previous single ‘Neurosis’, Bel is continuing to please her ever growing fan-base by unveiling her brand new track ‘Devil On Your Shoulder’ which GIITTV are proud to premiere.
Bel says of her new single: “This song is about realizing that you want more out of your relationship than can be given to you by the person, regardless of how much you care for them. there comes a point where it is only fair to walk away, for your sake and theirs, and seek what it is you do need in hopes that they do the same.”
The summer is proving to be a busy time for Bel as she’s also preparing to release her debut EP “Watermelon”, a mix of quirky rock-fusion supported by powerful lyrics that draw on important and relevant topics important like love, sexuality, mental illness, and more, in the near future. She is immensely proud of the collection and says of the title and title track: “Watermelon came from a time when I was going through a breakup. The whole process of the breakup confused and frustrated me so deeply that I equated that frustration to my irrational fear of watermelon. So basically, the song is about how I wish that I had the same distaste for men as much as I have this distaste for watermelon, because then my life would be significantly easier.”
