Last week Vancouver’s Belle Game announced their upcoming sophomore album Fear/Nothing set for release 9/8 on Arts & Crafts alongside the release of their 1st single “Spirit”.
Directed by Kheaven Lewandowski and filmed in Northern India, the video features the only remaining “Well of Death” rider in the region. The stunning visual work tells the story of an inspiring young woman navigating through social inequalities in order to survive.
Produced by Dave Hamelin (The Stills) and executive producer Kevin Drew (Broken Social Scene), Fear/Nothing is filled with lush compositions led by the powerful and hypnotic vocals of Andrea Lo with backing vocals from Kevin Drew.
Fear/Nothing combines the sweeping synth-driven dream pop of the Cocteau Twins with confident vocal-driven melodies of genre-defying artists like Empress Of and Jessy Lanza. From hushed anthems to distorted instrumentals, Belle Game teeters between two worlds. Whatever the mood, it’s always a celebration of the hard times and a refusal of fear.
