“Shoegaze is alive and well with Canadian band Beliefs. It comes as no surprise that the duo of Josh Korody and Jesse Crowe were united by their love of My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth after intially meeting at a mutual friend’s birthday party.
On the title track of their sophomore full-length, Leaper, the band push through the shimmering washes of reverb with their guy/girl harmonies, setting off a swoon with Kevin Shields-influenced guitar effects. A spoken-word part towards the end truly calls to mind Kim Gordon in “Kool Thing.” If you’re gonna wear your influences on your sleeve, might as well have the best influences.” ~ KEXP
