No One Will Know
By September 18, 2007, summer was over, but Bella's second album wouldn't let those shorter days get their listeners down. Bella's coyly titled Mint debut No One Will Know extended the blissful season with its dreamy girl-boy-girl vocals, synthy hooks and punchy rhythms. It had its audiences reliving those sweaty carefree weekends, practicing their dance-moves in their living rooms while wishing, hoping, and bouncing around for more.
2007's No One Will Know featured contributions from Roddy Bottum and Will Schwartz (Imperial Teen) and Jason Martin (Starflyer 59), under the guiding eye of producer/mastermind Dave Carswell of JC/DC Studios (Tegan and Sara, New Pornographers). Their sparkling Mint Records debut channeled its influences from a synthier time, but in a gorgeous, non-ironic kind of way. Its dreamy girl-boy-girl vocals, synthy hooks and punchy rhythms captured all those sweaty, carefree summer weekends, practicing your dance-moves in your living room while wishing, hoping, and bouncing around for more.
"Bella sound like Dragonette without the cheese factor and Metric minus the “hipper than thou” attitude. The West coast trio’s Mint debut captures futuristic indie pop at its most danceable." - Sofi Papamarko, Exclaim!
"... while the parts are distinctly familiar, the end result is a creation that gleefully leaves behind the box it came in." - Matt Littlefair, Chart
"... if you are a fan of indie pop, you simply have to have this record in your collection." - Tim Sendra, AllMusic
