Today Belaver shares new single “Partner” via The Talkhouse; accompanied by an essay from producer Robert Ellis; check out the essay here. True Love of Crime is out next Friday, April 26th.
“Partner” is a catchy minimalist pop tune. Self categorized as “dark romance,” this duet (with Nona from the band Dark Dark Dark) celebrates having a partner in the fight against cultural conformity.
Drawing influences from icons Neil Young and David Bowie as well as alt-country stars like Bill Callahan and Townes Van Zandt, Belaver creates melancholic pop music with elements of goth, folk, lo-fi, indie rock, and electronic music.
