BelladonnaHazy dream-pop artist Belladonna shares her latest single, the extremely relatable break-up anthem ‘Love Like This‘.

“I wrote this song in my bedroom at my parents place after going through a messy break up. In a lightbulb moment this song poured out and I felt like I’d gained a sense of control. It’s an anthem for the broken-hearted and a reminder that if it’s not a love that serves you well, then it’s not worth your time. It’s a message I always come back to, and one I’m still learning. 

“I hope you can listen to it in your bedroom loudly, jump on your bed, and remind yourself of the kind of love you deserve’  – Belladonna

The moniker of musician and songwriter Bella Cook, Belladonna serves up a sound awash with dreamy vocals, ethereal synth and guitar, creating a sonic atmosphere that allows her pop melodies to float along blissfully.

BelladonnaStumbling upon songwriting by happy accident, Bella found herself constantly drawn into music’s storytelling, lugging around a tape recorder and catching snippets of glittery melodies and frank observations of daily life. Evolving from her seedling beginnings to her artist moniker Belladonna, her observations about the quirks of life became loaded one-liners, and her biographical lyrics and hypnotic melodies became the trademark of her fun blend of indie-pop.

In 2019 she moved to Auckland to finally put music at the forefront, where she hunkered down at Parachute Studios, dipped her toes into co-writing, and began committing her quirky pop tunes to tape. She found a kindred spirit in Shannon Fowler, the brains behind alt-pop outfit Tom Lark, and with Fowler at the helm released her debut EP Salty Dog in 2020.
