New Video for “Albatross” by The Besnard Lakes

This morning Pitchfork TV premiered the new video from The Besnard Lakes, “Albatross.” The video was directed by Kara Blake for Les Productions La Guerilla.  “Albatross” features a fantastic visual interpretation of the spies who inhabit The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night – a very glamorous man and woman both exploring the city and using clues they find in code over the short wave radio.

If you’ve been paying attention to your internet, you should have an inkling that The Besnard Lakes is going to reign down holy horse fire upon the record players of the world with their March 9th (8th in the UK) release, The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night.

The Besnard Lakes shall then rule the kingdom, and they will traverse all of the climate zones of North America in a glittering night fog. Before all that, though, they will travel to Austin, Texas to clink Tecates with their SXSW minions and play a roaring song.
