Bel-la – “Nothing’s Gonna Get You Back”


“Nothing’s Gonna Get You Back” is a new track from Bel-la, a Los Angeles-based artist. Depicting relatable themes of loss, the track’s evolves from more folk-friendly intimacy into a rock-friendly activeness with shades of blues. Bel-la’s suave, contemplative vocals enthrall throughout the shifting structure, touching upon elements of classic-rock amidst the modern pop flourishes.

“You’re just a memory in my mind,” Bel-la sings amidst lingering organs and a bouncy bass line. A charismatic guitar line follows as the three-minute mark approaches, adding a bluesy fervor to the melodic mix. The second half’s production is riveting with these converging elements, enhancing the track’s initial singer/songwriter tilt into a more thorough rock-forward satisfaction. “Nothing’s Gonna Get You Back” is a riveting success from Bel-la.

Bel-la expands upon the track’s inspirations:

“The inspiration for this song was really the sentiment of loss in general, loved ones passing, relationships ending etc and how even though these things are no longer in a physical form they still exist so strongly all around us and in our memories, and the fabric of our vast lives.”

This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2022’ Spotify playlist.
