“A whirling, ethereal haze over snappy beats” Noisey

“Spine-chilling … a thrilling anthem of self-possession and emotional fearlessness”  BlackBook

“A shimmering, sparkling take that would make the perfect summer road trip soundtrack” W Magazine

“This album is a triumph for a band who took a leap of faith, hoping they would fly; and fly they do” Earmilk

“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

Vancouver’s Belle Game have released a new video for “Low” with Noisey today. Pulled from their critically acclaimed sophomore album Fear/Nothing on Arts & Crafts, the video was directed by Kevan Funk and explores the cold, sterile nature of our fundamental longing for intimacy.

The band’s Andrea Lo comments, “Low is about the empty feeling I had when continually fucking people because I felt it was my role to service to them. The neglect of my own humanity served my deeper desire of being accepted. For this, it was necessary to dress up feelings of ugliness with overcompensated feelings of “love” and higher purpose.

 

Kevan Funk has given the narrative visual representation through capturing the disconnect, coldness and tenderness found in objects that offer acceptance and connection in place of true company. These objects can be toxic, but they reflect of our most human needs. They provide comfort, they fulfill desires, and they speak to a fundamental yearning for intimacy. They are honest, and in that sense, they are beautiful.”

 

Alongside the video, Belle Game have announce a tour as lead support for Broken Social Scene. Hitting cities such as Austin, New Orleans, and Baltimore, the 11-date run will follow their current North American headline tour. See below for a full date listing + tickets are available here.

 

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. Known for their ability to weave ethereal soundscapes into blown-out, crush-pop confessions, Fear/Nothing received accolades from the likes of W Magazine and Blackbook and saw Belle Game emerge with their most ambitious work to date. More than a comparison, Belle Game works to deliver musical catharsis, a sound and experience of allowing themselves and the listener to achieve a point of extreme vulnerability and freedom.
