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 are currently completing their sophomore record due out on Arts & Crafts.
I M U R
I M U R (I am you are), is a Future RnB group based in Vancouver. The trio’s tasteful blend of future-bass beats and live-looped instrumental and vocal melodies transcends genre and “induces true goosebumps” (All Things Go). Recently, I M U R performed at the Bumbershoot Festival main stage, playing alongside acts like Flume, Solange and Odesza, and was nominated for Electronic/Dance Artist of the year by the Western Canadian Music Awards. I M U R’s lead singer Jenny Lea grew up in Whistler, B.C. and got her start singing acoustic covers at the Crystal Lounge and the Garibaldi Lift Co.
