There's a young and vibrant music scene right here in Utah. From Provo to Ogden and beyond, bands are playing in house concerts, live venues and local record labels are making them available to the public. RadioWest brings some of the newest and the best bands into the studio to talk about and to play their music live.

Bullets & Belles

Thursday we’ve got the Salt Lake trio Bullets & Belles in studio to chat and play some tunes as part of our Local Music series. It’s hard to pin down the band’s unique sound, but neo-doo-wop-folk isn’t far from the mark. Bullets & Belles’ music features sparse instrumentation—little more than guitar and hand percussion—married to sublime three-part vocal harmonies and deeply-felt poetic lyrics that reflect on subjects like the brevity of youth, the war in Afghanistan and a mysterious California beach town.

Bullets & Belles is playing a live gig at the Downtown Farmers Market in Salt Lake City on Saturday, June 23, from 10 a.m. to noon.
