‘Bells’ - Transit Club | Review

‘Bells’ is an introspective and refreshing indie-pop banger. With a dreamy chorus that leads into an iconic indie drop, the song has a great sense of play and sincerity.

Swedish-Canadian indie-pop transit lovers Transit Club are back with their third single 'Bells'. ‘Bells’ is beautifully sculpted to be the soundtrack rose-tinted romantic nostalgia or lack thereof. Their sound is perfect for fans of Bon Iver, Francis and the Lights, Coldplay, Mumford & Sons, The Japanese House, and The 1975. Their sound drips with nostalgia and creates a sort of heartbeat with strong drum beats and upbeat chords progression.

Transit Club is a Swedish-Canadian alt-pop music collective based out of Stockholm, Sweden.

With his heart stuck somewhere between Ottawa and Stockholm, Canadian-born frontman and public transit enthusiast, Steve Motion, blends the sensitive songwriting and warm personalities of Justin Vernon, Lionel Richie, Chris Martin, and Joni Mitchell with an added touch of 21st-century public transit urgency.

With Olle Ahlsson (Guitars), Frej Forsman (Keys), Agnes Jensen (Vocals/Percussion) Niklas Levedahl (Bass) and Olle Ronach (Drums) completing the lineup, the band's live sets are known to be fun and electrically unifying sing-along symphonies. Transit Club took Obaren, Stockholm by storm with a jam-packed enthusiastic audience for their Garden 🍁release party in November 2018. They also supported E.B. The Younger (Eric from Midlake's solo project) at Nalen, Stockholm, in April 2019.

Transit Club's music is as spontaneously playful as it is impulsively emotional.

Debut singles 'Garden'🍁and 'Pretend'💛are warm, hopeful, melancholic. 'Garden' 🍁immediately gained traction when it was added to Spotify Seasonal Editorial Playlist, currently called softhöst (soft autumn), soundtracking listeners' emotions no matter the time of year.
