Belle Game Share New Single “Low”
Sophomore Fear/Nothing LP Out 9/8 On Arts & Crafts
National Tour w/ Broken Social Scene!
“A shimmering, sparkling take that would make the perfect summer road trip soundtrack”– W Magazine
“Lo’s voice is an expansive, powerful instrument that demands to be noticed” – Pitchfork
“Reminisces upon youthful encounters with narcissism, codependency and habitual lies” – Rolling Stone
In anticipation of their sophomore album Fear/Nothing out September 8th on Arts & Crafts, Vancouver’s Belle Game return with new single “Low”. Known for their ability to weave ethereal soundscapes into blown-out, crush-pop confessions, the track fuses harmonized atmospherics and textured drum programming with frontwoman Andrea Lo’s visceral admission of self-deprecation and personal abhorrence.
About the track, Andrea comments: “Low narrates the impersonal identity of my body as a vessel for service at the convenience of others. Perpetuating deep, silent, patterns of apathy and disassociation, ’fucking without feeling’. The lyrics bring awareness to my responsibility for my continued state by questioning aspects of denial, complacency and the attachments I hold towards identity and empty relationships.”
Fear/Nothing is a ten-track collection produced by Dave Hamelin (The Stills) and executive producer Kevin Drew (Broken Social Scene). A record of lush compositions, Belle Game combines the sweeping ethereal pop of the Cocteau Twins with the energetic vocal-driven melodies of genre-defying artists like Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Jessy Lanza.
Belle Game previously shared first single “Spirit” and its compelling video alongside an in-depth conversation with W Magazine.
Upon the release of their debut album Ritual Tradition Habit, the band earned critical praise from the likes of Rolling Stone and Pitchfork, while their emotional live performances prompted Paste Magazine to name them one of the “10 Great New Bands of CMJ”. Belle Game is currently on a North American tour, including a series of dates as lead support for Broken Social Scene. Be sure to catch their kinetic live energy in a city near you!
