"Bella Novela is an extremely fucking good hard rock band from Long Beach, California. “Hard rock” as a descriptor can maybe come off as a bit namby pamby, but with a healthy mix of Linda Ronstadt and Queens of the Stone Age coursing through their veins, Bella Novela don’t really have to worry too much about what terms might get attached to them."
- Noisey, Vice Magazine

"Long Beach, CA rock trio Bella Novela is one of those bands that is able to pull off the tricky task of sounding like classic rock without merely imitating the genre’s tropes." - Pop Matters

"Long Beach, CA's Bella Novela say they love both Iron Maiden and Abba "with equal levels of intensity," and it sounds like they probably love Heart and maybe Thin Lizzy too. Bella Novela take the sounds of '70s/'80s stadium rock and make them sound modern without really changing them much at all." - Brooklyn Vegan

"The sound is pure classic rock--think if Gwen Stefani fronted Blue Oyster Cult. Stuff that Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar would dig. They toe the line of being too technical to be cool, but who gives a fuck about being cool when you can play like that?" - OC Weekly

"High-drama high-energy rock from a band whose fervent hope is to outnova the Mexican daytime soaps: 'The bigger, the sadder and the more overdramatic the better,' singer Jackie says." - The District Weekly

"LONG BEACH TRIO BELLA NOVELA ARE READY TO BLOW UP: Drawing on such epic performers as Queen and Iron Maiden, this trio are on a mission to make music that’s as big as it is explosive, all done with cinematic flair." - OC Weekly

"For at least the last six years, Bella Novela has been the Long Beach band that should be blowing up. It's bizarre that even sound-saturated Los Angeles hasn't yet fallen for the three-piece's Metallica-meets-Queen aesthetic of indie-pop songs played with ferocious technical urgency" - Long Beach Post

"If you haven't had a chance to check out the power trio with prog-rock leanings, (also known as Bella Novela), it's time to get cracking. Impassioned vocals, uber guitar riffage and some gnarly drumming await." - OC Weekly

“We don't like keeping mum when Long Beach cinema trio Bella Novela play around town. If you haven't seen them, do yourself a favor and open your heart, mind and, above all, ears to these scarily talented rockers and their high-energy live show. They specialize in indie-metal anthems with cinematic flair." - Brandon Ferguson, OC Weekly
