Penned at the tender age of 15, Bathetic Farewell unfolds the narrative of a breakup, encapsulating the raw essence of heartbreak in Gate’s soulful vocals. “Forgive me, my love, I forgot my own name,” she croons, inviting listeners into the intimate cocoon of vulnerability.

As she honed her craft, Gate took to the stages of Barcelona, where she not only performed but also began piecing together the puzzle of her inaugural full-length project.

Influenced by legends such as David Bowie, Amy Winehouse, and Jeff Buckley, Bella Gate’s musical DNA reflects a rich tapestry of inspiration. 

Bathetic Farewell and its predecessor unveil a rising artist poised on the brink of a breakthrough, with a debut album looming on the horizon. Bella Gate‘s ethereal sound is a soothing balm, a melancholic embrace perfectly timed for the autumnal season.
