David Lynch presents Chrysta Bell’s „Swing With Me“

A voice like Annie Lennox. Forget cinema, David Lynch‚s current passion is artist development.

A bio plays up Chrysta Bell‚s haunting, bygone-era qualities, noting that the artist „certainly fits Lynch’s vision of the femme fatale archetype.“ But if ever there were a moment for Bell, this would seem to be it. Earlier this year, Lana Del Rey briefly held the role as the music media’s object of affection, and she owned a look and style that seemed ripped from a Lynch film.

Bell’s songs take their time, placing the emphasis on mood. Instruments are used to color and shade, rhythms are designed to ensnare, and Bell’s voice always sounds as if it’s emerging from smoke.

David Lynch has described her thusly: “The first time I saw her perform, I thought she was like an alien. The most beautiful alien ever.”
