Bio

With lyrics sharper than razor-wire and tunes that stick the boot in, Belter is punk for grown-ups who like a dance.

They’ve nicked the buzzsaw drive of The Buzzcocks, The Clash’s spunk, The Stranglers’ riffs and some of the best tunes Blondie never wrote. And their singer sounds like Jello Biafra pogoing on a Roxy Music-era Brian Ferry. Since they formed in 2007, Belter have taken their tight, energetic set to some of the world's most iconic venues: London’s 100 Club, the Paradiso in Amsterdam and the Trash Bar in Brooklyn.

2012 was a great year for the band. They headlined the opening night of the Cambridge Buzz festival, and later that summer were main support to Friday's headliner Katrina (of Katrina and the Waves) at Halesworth's Gig In The Park festival. Last year also saw the band record their first single, TV Junkie, with producer Marc Waterman (Elastica, Ride, Ash).

2013 looks to be even better: in January they followed their single with the release of a three-track EP, ‘Invisible Cat’ which sees the band’s trademark sound expanded with a little help from their friends on strings, brass and slide guitar. Tracks were engineered and co-produced by Stephen Stewart, whose production credits include Kim Wilde's seminal track, ‘Kids In America’.

Belter have played live on FM radio, and have been played on internet and FM radio stations all over the world, including BBC 6 Music (‘BBC Introducing.. with Tom Robinson’).
