— Belle Game's sophomore album Fear/Nothing, out September 8th via Arts & Crafts, saw the Vancouver band completely re-working their sound. Focusing more than ever before on the electronica they had begun to develop on their debut Ritual Tradition Habit, Fear/Nothing experiments with synth, atmospheric drums and a definite throwback to the dream pop of the 80's.

Written in basements and apartments, Fear/Nothing is about becoming at home with yourself, and for Belle Game, it was about becoming at home with each other once more. The opening track of the album is called «Shine». Setting the tone for the rest of Fear/Nothing, «Shine» begins softly, timidly. Vocalist Andrea Lo is easing into her voice. But when she's finished the first line, it becomes apparent that there is something Other in her voice this time. It's deeper, more powerful, wider. «It's not enough, it's never enough.» Indeed, as Lo sings these words on «Shine», she seems to be reaching for the stars; slow-motion climbing her way to the heavens. This is where Fear/Nothing lives — somewhere in between the earth and the sky. Not quite among the stars, but ever reaching for them.

Lo keeps on climbing, her voice reaching new heights as the track changes effortlessly from «Shine» to «Spirit», the first single from the album and another absolute highlight. «Spirit» is a vocal triumph. Lo reveals of the album: «A theme that's constantly touched upon, in a very broad and universal sense, is the nature of duality in life, and how these things all somehow, maddeningly so, coexist with each other…it fucks with your head, that's the way life goes. „
