ROLEMODEL premiere their new track “Until” featuring Jesse Crowe of BELIEFS / PRAISES off the group’s forthcoming EP, Claire (available now in our HDD STORE).
“The music of Rolemodel is often described as “dreamy,” “hazy,” “ethereal” – the list of adjectives with nods to the subconscious go on. This mood defined the pop-meets-shoegaze project’s 2013 full-length, Before Then Was Now, and continues on “Until,” an intoxicating new track” ~ FLAVORWIRE

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

Following the world-wide critical acclaim of Beliefs, Jesse wasted no time and headed into Toronto’s Candle Recording Studio (Owen Pallet, Austra, F’d Up) to put her creative energy into a 4 song EP filled with Dream Pop, Freak Folk, and Madchester sounds.
Catch Praises debut performance at CMW May 08th at Toronto’s Silver Dollar with Strands, Omhouse, Red Mass, RLMDL, and Operators (Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs, Divine Fits).
