“First Look: Prepare to get hooked on the glistening new album from fuzzy dream-pop band, Beliefs” ~ DAZED

“using their seminal influences as a catalyst rather than template, “their self-titled debut album is a frighteningly assured and expansive effort, recalls last decade’s High Water Marks, Women or Deerhunter” ~ Rough Trade UK

“Layers of dreamy barely-there vocals, thick crunchy guitar chords, feedback overtones and urgent drums propel this addictive, rousing shoe-gaze anthem.” ~ Rough Trade/The Guardian UK

“The album will please fuzz-lovers with distortion-filled amp-melters like “Catch My Breath,” while seven-and-a-half minute closer “Gallows Bird” begins with contemplative arpeggios before exploding into a cinematic epic.” ~ EXCLAIM!

BELIEFS ‘LILLY’ (VIDEO) VIA STEREOGUM

Just ahead of their debut album (ORDER HERE), BELIEFS release a stunning new video for “Lilly“, directed by Ivy Lovell and Benjamin Portas. “Lilly” premiered on Stereogum, Paper Magazine, Chartattack, & Exclaim! Magazine. “Catch My Breath” is also named Track Of The Week over at Rough Trade & The Guardian UK.

“You are invited too the strangest of dinner parties in Beliefs’ video for “Lilly.” The Toronto shoegazers deliver a hazy Matthew Barney-like fever dream with black and pink spaghetti served as the main course.” ~ Stereogum

BELIEFS NME #1 BUZZ

BELIEFS #1 BUZZ in this week’s issue of NME MAGAZINE!

Beamed up from the same Canadian hype scene that made good with Grimes and Doldrums, Toronto duo Beliefs are, in a musical sense, the blissed-out siblings of their freaky Montreal buddies. Clinging to the shaky shoegaze train, they manage to not be totally boring – unlike 99.9 per cent of their genre compatriots. Songs like ‘Catch My Breath’ give a serotonin injection to soaring dreampop that’s every bit as spiritual as their name suggests. What’s more, singer-guitarist Jesse Crowe used to have a hairdressing salon called – ahem – Grateful Head.

Their self-titled debut LP – out March 4 on No Pain In Pop [March 5th on Hand Drawn Dracula & Manimal] – promises nifty cuts of the sonic variety.
