Album Review: Dreamers

Title:  Dreamers (Amazon, iTunes)
Artist:  Belle Histoire (Official, Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm)

Hailing from Cincinnati, OH Belle Histoire plays indie pop in the vein of The Sundays and The Cranberries.  The songs on Dreamers are your traditional type of pop rock that was played by bands in the early '90s alternative scene but they don't sound tired or like a cheap copy of the original.  Instead Belle Histoire has put together a collection of 11 very well crafted and expertly executed pop tunes driven by Jane Smith’s fantastic voice.  Belle Histoire is definitely the kind of band that could have mainstream success.  Songs like "Kids"--my favorite on Dreamers--are catchy and fun and could easily become big hits with the right push.
