The Besnard Lakes Deliver Animated Video for "Our Heads, Our Hearts on Fire Again"
It's the Montreal band's second clip with director Dr. Cool
Published Jan 19, 2021The Besnard Lakes' forthcoming double album The Besnard Lakes Are the Last of the Great Thunderstorm Warnings remains one of Exclaim!'s Most Anticipated Canadian Albums of 2021, and the Montreal outfit have returned with another new video before its arrival.
After wrapping their 2020 with a Dr. Cool-directed video for "Feuds with Guns," the band and visual artist have come together once more for "Our Heads, Our Hearts on Fire Again." The colourful, kaleidoscopic clip features houses with human features, galloping horses and brilliantly-hued highways.
"A skeletal version of the song had been in the Besnard vault for several years after we initially rejected it for a film soundtrack," the band shared of their latest in a statement. "It went through a couple drafts before we tore it apart, rejiggered some parts and resurrected it to its new form. The song is an ode to logic and intuition and being able to learn from the past."
The Besnard Lakes Are the Last of the Great Thunderstorm Warnings arrives January 29 through Flemish Eye/Fat Cat/Full Time Hobby and is now available for pre-order.
