Dearly Beloved – Hawk vs. Pigeon (eOne Music Canada)

Toronto band Dearly Beloved offer one of the most sonically interesting records of the year so far with Hawk vs Pigeon. Boasting a sound that falls somewhere in the realm of stoner rock, shoegaze and psych pop, the lack of musical boundaries and at times unconventional song arrangements is what will help the group appeal to fans of Queens of the Stone Age, among others. Tight song arrangements and great dueling boy-girl vocals add a nice contrasting sweetness to the sometimes-stark soundtrack that the vocals accompany.
