The Belles

Melvin b/w Come Back

North Miami Beach’s Belles were remarkably free of any masculine influence—an all-girl, teen rock band that played instruments, wrote songs, and were a good representation of multiculturalism in the 60s. The Belles’ lone single featured “Melvin,” is a gender-swapped rewrite of Them’s “Gloria,” b/w “Come Back.” is pure representation of girls in the garage.

Bundle: Snag all three 45s in the Beehive Bundle - includes The Contessas, The Belles, and Vickie & The Van Dykes.

Pre-order: Release date December 15, 2023. Begins shipping early December.
