Bella Hardy

With The Dawn

(Noe Records)

Bella Hardy’s new album presents itself as a year’s worth of musical autobiography, fragments captured on iPhones or in the bath, with excursions for Great War commemoration (all VADs and Land Girls).

Banjo and brass turn on a sixpence from jaunty to mournful; the lovelorn lines of “The Only Thing To Do” tumble out over the loveliest melody imaginable.
