Bellows is the project of Oliver Kalb (ex The Epochs) that features members of Frankie Cosmos’ band in the live lineup. “Funny Things” is the band’s preview single of the forthcoming album “Blue Breath”, which was “recorded in five bedrooms Kalb lived in over the course of three years”. If – from this premise – you expected a more subdued and lo-fi kind of music, you’d be only half wrong. The song stands in slight contrast with the rest of the album. It is voluble and soul stirring, and while it may seem more appropriate in a cathedral or even an open field, it remains personal, not quite the whispered words of other songs on the album, but individual and intimate nonetheless, an impassioned perspective from a cloistered bedroom.
