Vancouver native Dan Bejar is set to return in August with his eleventh album under the pseudonym Destroyer. Ahead of that album he’s shared the video for the second track lifted from the album, Girl In A Sling.

Discussing the video for the track, director David Galloway said, “he’s the Pacific Northwest’s Buster Keaton, and I hope one day to share that with the world. One day. For now, though, there’s just this sadness. This poison season.” And certainly the casual observer would probably see more sadness than slapstick in both the song and the video, either way it’s an exciting taste of the album that’s too come. Daniel Bejar is an singer songwriter from Canada.  Bejar has gained widespread popularity through his musical collaborations with Vancouver indie rock  band The New Pornographers, but has released far more material as the band Destroyer.

Poison Season is out August 28th on via Merge/Dead Oceans. Destroyer start their tour of the UK at the end of October including dates at Islington Assembly Hall and Leeds’ Brudenell Social Club.
