Most of this footage was taken by my grandfather around the 70s and part of the footage is of me as a child, me at the age I am now. Lakes explores identity and feelings of being lost. We are all bodies that feed into each other to make our own individual lakes. I found a great deal of identity through community and through isolation that sense of self was lost. Through the music video I wanted to find identity through family and heritage. I never really developed a relationship with my grandfather and I found a large sense of self through making the video. Many tears were shed.

Francis of Delirium’s EP Wading consists of three previously released singles and one new track in “I Think I’m Losing.” Taken as a whole, the collection of releases by Vancouver teen Jana Bahrich and Seattle drummer/producer Chris Hewett brings as much heart as it does edge. Bahrich’s range of vocal stylings are on full display, from more mild-mannered indie melodies to half-spoken poetic verses to powerful, emo-infused belts. Paired with grungy, fuzzy guitar, drums and choral harmonies, the duo pack a serious punch. The EP’s new song “I Think I’m Losing” is a stunning, dynamic ballad that pulls all these elements together and finishes the Wading EP with a bang.

Fans of Nirvana, Nilufer Yanya, Julien Baker, The Beths and garage rock of any proportion, we’d like to introduce you to your new favourite band. 90s grunge collides with indie folk and millenial DIY, the Luxembourg-based duo Francis of Delirium release one of the most astute debut bodies of work we’ve ever heard.
