When discussing Bell Stray one phrase pops out: Acquired taste. Joanna Newsome is an acquired taste too, but if you like her, you'll like Bell Stray for the same reasons. Bell has a girlish voice and makes innovative use of rhythm and instrumentation. From the reggae infused Muggy Force, to the eerie, pseudo hip-hop of "Shake You," there's just something about this girl that gets under your skin.
