Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and double neck guitar artist Bella Moulden has released new synth-rock track, Wire – following the success of her self-penned and produced song, SelfCare – which blew up on TikTok.
New release, Wire was written, composed and produced by Moulden and is an ‘80s-meets-Y2K-meets-2023 bop that weaves together synth-wave soul and rock guitars.
In this Emerging Headliner interview powered by JBL, Wire, says Moulden, is “bringing some synthy-punk-pop-rock to the new year. Genres are out of style!”
Check out her social media and you’ll see what caught actress Juliette Lewis’ attention – Moulden regularly updates her Instagram and TikTok with fuzzed-up covers of Black Sabbath, Stevie Nicks and The Black Keys – whilst rocking a wardrobe that’s straight out of the ‘70s.
In October 2021, Lewis shared a video on her Instagram of a double neck guitar-wielding Moulden performing a loop video of Ozzy Osbourne's 1980 hit, Crazy Train, which got a share from Mrs Osbourne herself.
“Juliette Lewis, my queen! She shared it first,” says a still slightly dumbfounded Moulden, shaking her head at the memory.
“And then Sharon shared it too. Juliette Lewis is so cool. All I know is when I saw that she followed me, I was crying and throwing up,” she laughs. “I was like, ‘Excuse me? The queen of actressing (I just made that a word) has followed me? What's going on?’ I was actually crying on my toilet seat, like, ‘Is this real?’
“I love ‘60s and ‘70s classic rock,” she tells Headliner. “So, Jimi Hendrix, of course, although my tastes are pretty sporadic, like The Jonas Brothers, Prince, Gwen Stefani and Adele; I fell in love with her voice immediately – she is so funny. I love her. If I met her I would just pass away. I don't even know what I would do,” she laughs, adding that listening to Adele made her explore the soulful, singing side of music.
