Watch Lanterns on the Lake’s Enigmatic ‘The Buffalo Days’

lanterns on the lake, the buffalo days

Early next year, U.K. outfit Lanterns on the Lake will play their first-ever shows in North America, in support of their upcoming sophomore album, Until the Colours Run. The LP is also slated to hit the states in January, but first comes the official music video for self-described “cinematic indie” track, “The Buffalo Days.” In one sense, the new clip is very literal and obvious — footage of buffalo in the wild flashes across the screen — but in another, it’s cryptic. To see two masked figures posing as buffalo sip red wine and watch television, hit the play button above. And to get a jump on Lanterns on the Lake’s live shows, find tour dates below.
