BELIEFS – BELIEFS   (clear smokey vinyl / premium digital)

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

“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! Magazine

Beliefs – Lilly (Video)

Just ahead of their debut album (PRE-ORDER HERE), BELIEFS release a 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’s #1 The Buzz

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

NME The Buzz
#1 BELIEFS
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.

Beliefs “Violets” Video

BELIEFS have a brand new video for the bonus track and digital single “Violets“, directed by Adam Christopher Seward of RITUALS (http://adamchristopher.4ormat.com). “Violets” premiered on MuchMusic’s The Wedge, Exclaim!, Chartattack, & NYLON Magazine.

Beliefs – Lily (live video)

“In August, Exclaim! TV was invited to Candle Recording to shoot a session with Toronto shoe-gazers, BELIEFS. Gearing up for a new album to be released in 2013, the band treated Exclaim! to a couple of album cuts that have not been released yet. You already got a taste for what the yet-to-be-titled album will sound like back in October when we posted the first song from the session, “Dead Water.” Now, you can take a listen to the second song from that session, “Lily.”” ~ Exclaim!TV Magazine
