THE BELLE GAME

A Canadian chill seems to float into this Vancouver combo’s guitars, keyboards and rhythm section, setting the backdrop for vocalist Andrea Lo to wrap her voice around. The music does a little shoegazing, taps into melancholia and sets the mood for fading daylight. The young combo has an eclectic sound, albeit it has not quite blossomed, as some of the songs in live performances seem to hang over the stage, looking for the next turn of phrase. But fans of Brit dream pop take note: This ensemble clearly has the talent to mature into an original combo. Exhibit A: the fairly cohesive debut recording released last year on the band’s hometown label, Boompa. (Samir Shukla)
