The Bellwether Syndicate (USA)


(last.fm) Founded by William Faith (of Faith and the Muse) upon moving from his native Los Angeles to Chicago in 2011, The Bellwether Syndicate also features the talents of long- standing Chicago fixture Sarah Rose (known to most as the prolific and well-traveled DJ Scary Lady Sarah), now stepping out into the realm of playing and performing. While the music is written and recorded by William and Sarah, the live show features family members Philly Peroxide (keyboards/percussion) and Mike Skull (bass).

February, 2013 marks the release of The Night Watch EP, a solid 5-song release that draws from a variety of aesthetics, combining the energy and attitude of punk rock with the sharp synths and driving beats of electronica; the lush, droning feedback of shoegaze with the intensity and drama of chamber music; the dark atmospherics of post-punk and goth with the sexy sneer of glam — from dark indie to baroque pop, The Night Watch EP proves that The Bellwether Syndicate are a unique hybrid; an eclectic amalgam of sound and style.
