“[It’s] a love affair between human and concrete,” says Beliefs vocalist-guitarist Jesse Crowe, speaking about the Toronto-based indie band’s latest track. “‘1994’ explores the relations we have to the high rises around us, as living, breathing entities.”
Indeed, the seductive new song does a dazzling job of setting steely, urban structures with a sensuality typically reserved for flesh and blood. “It’s time to kiss… concrete,” Crowe repeats, and she and bandmate Josh Korody paralyze us with chiming, skeletal guitar and driving, rhythmic bass.
It’s the first song shared off Beliefs’ third full length, Habitat, due Sept. 22 via Outside Music/Hand Drawn Dracula. Check out the music video below, premiering exclusively on Billboard.
