The Belle Game have an irresistibly organic quality to their sound, even though they hail from Vancouver’s sprawling metropolis (well, it’s busy for Canada).
It has been a long road for the quintet, releasing two critically acclaimed ep’s since 2009, however April will see them release long awaited debut ‘Ritual Tradition Habit’. This week saw the dark-pop connoisseurs drop a rather unnerving clip to accompany their first official single, which plays out more like a short film than a music video.
The Kheaven Lewandowski directed clip for ‘Wait Up To You’ focuses on a rather eerie cult, it’s disconcerting nature making The Belle Game’s noir pop seem pretty optimistic in comparison. Strangely enough the cinematic qualities of the video actually give the track a deeper sense of meaning, as the song’s driving rhythm soundtracks one girl’s escape from her bizzarre family to great effect.
‘Ritual Tradition Habit’ drops on April 16th via Boompa Records, however for now check out the clip to ‘Wait Up For You’ below.
