Etiquette – Outside In (Video) Stereogum Premiere


ETIQUETTE is pleased to share the video for “Outside In” through a premiere by STEREOGUM. The song appears on their forthcoming debut album, Reminisce, due for release February 24, 2015 on Hand Drawn Dracula. The video was directed by Christopher Mills and Gaëlle Legrand, with support from MuchFACT.

“the album will be one to look out for. It’s eerie, minimal synth and guitar music in the vein of Chromatics, or the back half of Talking Heads’ Remain In Light” ~ STEREOGUM

“Outside In” will be available digitally on December 16th, just two days before Etiquette take the stage in their hometown of Toronto at Danforth Music Hall, opening for Rural Alberta Advantage.

BELIEFS “Tidal Wave” (VIDEO) STEREOGUM Premiere


BELIEFS is pleased to launch the video for new song “Tidal Wave” via the fine folks at STEREOGUM. The video, directed by Trevor Blumas (DOOMSQUAD) and Laura Lynn Petrick, perfectly complements the song evoking an atmosphere of pre-digital age, public access late-night music television. The track is a preview from the forthcoming album Leaper, scheduled to be released in spring 2015.

“Beliefs hail from Toronto and make the kind of fogged-in shoegaze that stands the test of time — I could have seen this band play last weekend in Brooklyn, but my mom could have seen them the year I was born.” ~ STEREOGUM

Praises – The Devil (Video)


PRAISES “The Devil” video premieres on CHARTATTACK, an ICEAGE cover, and local shows announced.

“The co-leader of Toronto shoegazers Beliefs debuts an otherworldly video for her dusted pop solo project. In Jesse Crowe’s Praises, you can still hear the same knack for sweeping melody displayed in the fuzzier shoegaze project Beliefs. It’s good music for impromptu journeys, and in her video for the “The Devil” we’re treated to a living room performance (shot by her father) superimposed with footage of a trip through Iceland.” ~ CHARTATTACK

“Crowe lets her cover slowly hit your core, like a couple extra shots of high-grade NyQuil” ~ Exclaim!
