We’re closing out 2017 & moving on to 2018 with PRAISES – EP2 (Jesse of BELIEFS / YI) and
BREEZE – RECORD (Josh of BELIEFS & Kyle of THE SEAMS / WISH).

PRAISES is the solo project of Beliefs co-founder Jesse Crowe. Following the world-wide critical acclaim of Beliefs and the release of her first EP1 as Praises, Jesse Recorded EP2 at Toronto’s Candle Recording Studio with co-producer Josh Korody, Andrew Roy on bass, Robyn Phillips (Vallens) on guitar, and Laura Jane Beach on violin.

BREEZE started as a few sketches in the notebook of songwriter, producer, and engineer Josh Korody. Their dream-pop sound took form soon after with collaborators and friends Kyle Connolly and Shawn Dell joining the band. After a few weeks of rehearsals, the three went into Korody’s Candle Recording Studio in Toronto’s west-end with producer Leon Taheny to record a full length record in 2013.

CRICKETS LP is out now // ORDER //

SONG OF THE DAY “Ora Cogan draws from a wide web of influence, but – truly – she sounds like no other.” ~ CLASH

Critic’s Pick / NNNN “She’s proven herself a gifted songwriter, but in finding a logical way to extend her neo-folk foundation into darkwave territory, Cogan now sounds truly vital.” ~ NOW MAGAZINE

“Cogan moves gracefully between introspective synth ballads and psychedelic folk songs. And while her lyrics focus on corporate greed and environmental degradation, her transcendent arrangements provide relief and hope.” ~ DAILY BANDCAMP

“laced with a nostalgic vein running right through its hazy core – Like some snapshot of summer, the song almost wilts under the weight of winter but such sentiments are diluted by the new video which adds a big dash of charm to the whole piece, somewhat transforming the track in to a wistful and stirring reminder of summer” ~ GOLD FLAKE PAINT
