Orchestrally inclined Montreal outfit the Besnard Lakes have released a stunning new video for “Colour Yr Lights In,” from their April album Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO. Seen above, the Sanchez Brothers-directed clip stars French-Canadian actor Martin Dubreuil as a man whose reality appears to be constantly crumbling around him. As the wintry, harmonically rich song opens, we see our star lying in bed, smoking a cigarette while he laughs maniacally or beats about his head with his own hands. As night falls, he hits the town, yelling at invisible demons, drinking at a bar, playing with a discarded bicycle wheel, and even soliciting a prostitute or two. The video is NSFW thanks to that last part, but the images aren’t overly explicit. Those massive space-rock guitars, however… Catch the Besnard Lakes on the road behind their Secretly Canadian-backed fourth LP.
