Press Release :
"Impeccable…Perfect homespun beats" - DJ Magazine
"Sweet, sweet soul built around jazzy guitars, handcrafted beats, and a dusting of turntablism." - XLR8R Magazine
"Every track is a winner!! 10/10" - DJ Andy Smith (Portishead)

"Anything You Want (Not That)" is the first single from Belleruche's eagerly anticipated second album, 'The Express'.
Building on the trio's distinctive sophisticated-yet-quirky sound with a slightly more raw, bluesy vibe, "Anything You Want (Not That)" will delight and impress existing Belleruche fans and win over the uninitiated in style with its laid-back catchy charm, subtle electronic flourishes and Kathrin deBoer's inimitable, soulful vocals.

The unique sound of their acclaimed debut LP, 2007's aptly-named 'Turntable Soul Music' won Belleruche a dedicated and spiralling fan base and it rapidly became the fastest-selling debut on Tru Thoughts to date, with sales of well over 10,000 and counting. Acclaim and support has come from Daddy G (Massive Attack), Norman Jay and many other music luminaries around the world, and their international appeal has gained them playlisting on the French national radio station, FIP, and major features in the press as far afield as Switzerland, the USA and Canada.

Since the release of their debut, Kathrin deBoer, Ricky Fabulous and DJ Modest have spent a fair portion of their time gigging around the world and notching up performances at diverse and legendary locations including Glastonbury, Sydney Opera House and the Montreux Jazz Festival - where they befriended The Raconteurs and indie favourites Vampire Weekend and struck up a riotous genre-blending jam onstage. Belleruche also supported the mighty Fat Freddys Drop on tour earlier this year, playing to in excess of 5000 fans at the Hammersmith Apollo. With her irresistible style becoming increasingly in demand, Kathrin has become the regular singer for the Bonobo live band, and you may have recently heard her dulcet tones on tracks by the likes of DJ Vadim, Aaron Jerome and label mates TM Juke And The Jack Baker Trio.

The B side on this 7", "Don't Let Them Push You Around" is a slice of stripped back blues, with heavier bluegrass guitar in a virtuoso turn from Mr Fabulous and a pounding, White Stripes-esque bass drum beat, all shaken up and given a twist by a touch of turntablism from DJ Modest, and of course those vocals spinning a sultry tale over the top. An extra bonus, this is an exclusive track which will not be appearing on the album.

Look out for the sensational album 'The Express' which is out on CD on 13th October, along with a limited edition EP of the same name on double 7" vinyl.
