The BESNARD LAKES – ” She’s An Icicle “

Posted: April 7, 2022 in MUSIC

Unique among their furrowed brow peers, The Besnard Lakes are unafraid to marry textured, questing headphone sonics to the honeyed pleasure of radio hits past: the rapture of My Bloody Valentine entwined with the romance of Fleetwood Mac. Imagine dreamy Beach House riding Led Zeppelin dynamics, with unabashedly androgynous vocal harmonies.

Following the triumphant, epic “Are the Last of the Great Thunderstorm Warnings” album released in early 2021, The Besnard Lakes have shared a new track recording during those album sessions in the form of “She’s An Icicle”.

“The original had many parts strung together and it was all a bit goofy,” say the band.

“We eliminated most of the other parts and then Oggy said it was too boring so we reworked one of the parts to make it less goofy and shoved it in the middle of the track.” The song starts off sounding like it was beamed in from those early Spiritualized records, morphing then into that signature Besnards sound, with Jace Lasek’s falsetto gliding over the widescreen psychedelic shimmer – all of which making us very excited for the band’s forthcoming European tour dates, kicking off on 19th April in Belgium.
