BELIEFS // 1994 (VIDEO) via BILLBOARD


BELIEFS premiere “1994” video on BILLBOARD!

Directed by HDD collaborator Christopher Mills (Modest Mouse, Interpol, Vallens), “1994” is the first music video from Beliefs new album Habitat, out September 22nd 2017.

“the seductive new song does a dazzling job of setting steely, urban structures with a sensuality typically reserved for flesh and blood – If “1994’ is any indication, the new LP figures to augment the feathery, shoegazey dream pop of their past with stark, stylish post-punk.” – BILLBOARD

“Nailbiter makes sludgy experimental electro with shades of industrial and a pinch of gothiness. “Smeared” is a short song with a sense of impending doom, and though the sounds are cacophonous, it is still melodious and beat-driven.” ~ SILENT SHOUT
