Press Release :
45 rpm 7" single on Hippoflex. Numbered limited edition of 1000, or CD issue with handstitched packaging (Sold out!!).
The second Hippoflex release. The Itch is heavy. It's three minutes of hook ridden and bass driven soul, underpinned with lead booted drums. It's always louder than I think. The B side is an 'acoustic' thing, made with broken leads, twisted tension and a small room. It's still hiphop though.

Reviews :
"The Soul rock of ' The Itch' meets the ambi-jazz loverliness of '13 6 35'. Belleruche return with a 7 that simply takes ones breath away. Think Betty Davis meets Portishead!!! Check these cats live, the Big Chill and Glastonbury 07 beckon!" (ifmusic.co.uk)

"Two sweet soulful funk cuts from this excellent outfit whose singer Kathrin DeBoer has a really first rate voice which sounds somewhere between Alice Russell and Roisin Murphy. Their first independent single became hot property very quickly with radio plays up and down the country. "The Itch" is a upbeat groove with a seriously funky bassline. On the flip, "Thirteen: Six: Thirty Five" is a slow and smooth groove. Will appeal to fans of Alice Russell, Quantic and the Tru Thoughts sound. A band to watch." (phonicarecords.co.uk)
