Led by the hypnotic vocals of Andrea Lo, Belle Game weaves ethereal soundscapes into, blown-out, crush-pop confessions. Sonically, Belle Game exists somewhere between new age visions and unkempt basements. Keyboards and guitars swell between the cracks as a foundation of subsonic rhythm is splayed across the floor. Their debut album Ritual Tradition Habit earned the band critical praise from the likes of Pitchfork and Rolling Stone; while their emotional live performances prompted Paste Magazine to name them one of the 10 Great New Bands from CMJ.
From hushed anthems to distorted instrumentals, Belle Game is always teetering between two worlds. Whatever the mood, it’s always a celebration of the hard times and a refusal of fear. The band’s new album (featuring the single “Yuh”) was produced by Dave Hamelin, executive produced by Kevin Drew and is to be released late 2017 via Arts & Crafts.
Regarding The Belle Game’s latest recording, Andrea states: “This process helped us grow as a team and I believe this shows through our new material. We shifted, pushed and pulled ourselves throughout this process and as a result, assembled something that is the sum of our unique experiences, tastes and influences.”
Creative BC is proud to support The Belle Game as part of the BC Music Fund’s Sound Recording Program.
