Bella Union recently announced the signing of hotly-tipped Manchester-based electronic-pop duo Bernard + Edith. Already firmly established within the city’s underground music scene, Greta ‘Edith’ Carroll and Nick ‘Bernard’ Delap draw on influences ranging from Fever Ray and Portishead via Cocteau Twins, David Lynch and Kate Bush to create the most deliciously dark art-pop/soul. Earlier this year the band released their debut single ‘Poppy‘ on SWAYS Records to much acclaim.
