Vancouver quintet, The Belle Game, released their debut album, Ritual Tradition Habit today on Boompa - you can stream the record in its entirety via Under The Radar. Ritual Tradition Habit was recorded by John Raham (Dan Mangan/The Be Good Tanya's/Frazey Ford) and takes the listener on a journey through twelve beautifully layered tracks, interrupted by the occasional chant, hymn and instrumental rumbling.
The Belle Game released the first single off Ritual Tradition Habit, "Wait Up For You", on 7" single in early March on Boompa/Bella Union along with a video directed by Kheaven Lewandowski - watch here - before making their U.S. debut at the SXSW Music Conference. The band has announced a run of Canadian dates into the summer (dates below). A return to the U.S. is in the works.
Over the past two years, The Belle Game have built a burgeoning, loyal fanbase with the release of two EPs and performed with such artists as Gotye, Hannah Georgas, Karkwa, Said The Whale, and most recently Half Moon Run. The band takes intricate guitar and keyboard lines, anchored by dark pop rhythms, and weaves them into gorgeous, graceful melodies.
