The Van Allen Belt creates dreamy electro psych-pop that churns and swells around the exquisite vocals of Tamar Kamin. The Van Allen Belt has been described as creating John Barry-esque cinematic scores with vocals that conjure Shirley Bassey; invoking the Euro indiepop bombast of Jens Lekman to the symphonic swells of The Ronnettes;

The Van Allen Belt is hitting the road this spring and summer while the band preps their upcoming album, with a live performance that incorporates projected visuals comprised of original animations and paintings by digital artist/painter Peter Luckner (Ohio State University). See them in at home in Pittsburgh at Bloomfield Bridge Tavern on Sat. June 30th.

“This music ventures from the edge of 60’s psyche band territory (although they sound nothing like them, think Jefferson Airplane at their most playful), through soundtracks that defined ‘hip’ (think Bacharach meets Schifrin meets Barry), and on to the pure pop of luminaries like The Beach Boys, The Association, and the Mamas and Papas. Put all of those together (yes, I know, it is unfeasible, but…), add some of today’s technology, a great (I mean GREAT) pop sensibility, and you get an album like this: impossible to categorise, luscious to listen to.” – Leicester Bangs
