The “darkly enigmatic new video” for the Christopher Mills directed “Retreat (Light The Fire)” premieres on UK’s GOLD FLAKE PAINT ahead of the release this Friday.

“The song itself is as warped and wonderful as we’ve come to expect, the whole thing seemingly pitched on the very precipice of falling apart throughout, the vivid instrumentation juxtaposed by a led vocal which is anything but” ~ GOLD FLAKE PAINT

“the sounds, intricate and layered, often times completely and beautifully weird; and patience with the direction they are going toward. For Beliefs’ latest record, Habitat, that patience pays off in dividends. Their third LP is harsher and admittedly much darker but it still promises to be illuminating and rich.” ~ NOISEY

New album announced and “1994” video premiere on BILLBOARD!

Directed by Christopher Mills (Modest Mouse, Interpol, Vallens), “1994” is the first music video from our new album Habitat, out September 22nd 2017 via Hand Drawn Dracula / Outside Music.

“the seductive new song does a dazzling job of setting steely, urban structures with a sensuality typically reserved for flesh and blood – If “1994’ is any indication, the new LP figures to augment the feathery, shoegazey dream pop of their past with stark, stylish post-punk.” – BILLBOARD

Get There (Stream) via Fader & Stereogum

Premiere (stream) via The FADER.

“GET THERE”, an outtake from the LEAPER recording sessions, features vocals by fellow Toronto musician Jonathan Rogers (Elsa, The Seams), and describes “a road trip that feel like it will never end, running from your life and having no idea where you’re going.” ~ Jesse Crowe.

“Beliefs Share “Get There,” A Lucid Shoegazing Odyssey ~ the sensation of getting lost in a current, the kind of zoning out commonly associated with this kind of shoegaze. But the propulsion driving it is benevolent and calming” ~ The FADER

Get There is a starry collaboration between them and fellow Toronto band Elsa’s Jonathan Rogers, and it makes it sound like life’s all about the journey.” ~ STEREOGUM


Swooner (VIDEO) premiere via CLASH

New video for Swooner, directed by Ivy Lovell, via UK’s CLASH magazine + CBC Music, Chartattack, Exclaim, Sidewalk Hustle, Indienative, Culture Adicts

“Even 40 years on from the dawn of punk, shaving your head can still be a rebellious move. For a woman, it’s an especially profound gesture. It’s the complete removal from a capitalist hierarchy, from the monetisation of female beauty. Don’t want to partake in the endless beauty chase? Shave it all off and let the world stare.

Thankfully, director Ivy Lovell captured the process, and an oddly intimate experience – matched to the searingly truthful music of Beliefs, it’s a coruscating listen and an addictive watch” ~ CLASH (UK)
