The Besnard Lakes

Canadian group The Besnard Lakes have shared new song “Our Heads, Our Hearts on Fire Again” as the second single from their first album in nearly five years, The Besnard Lakes Are The Last of the Great Thunderstorm Warnings.

“Our Heads, Our Hearts on Fire Again” follows October’s lead single “Raindrops”. Discussing the new release, the band says, “This song has been floating around since the Roaring Night era. We could never figure out how to finish it. Well, we figured out how to finish it. It has that 3/4 waltz we love so much, the same 3/4 waltz that “Disaster” rested upon. It’s also a bit of a lament about how sad we were when we parted ways with Jagjaguwar.”

They add, “This is the second time Oggy’s lyric “On the other side of the world” is used; here it is to detail the comparison between geography and forensics, and that human beings are detectives of time.”

When asked for some insider knowledge about the production of the video, Dr Cool had this to say:

“So the video is basically a combination of things I assumed the band is into. I noticed they once had a horse on one of their covers so I quickly learnt to draw horses. I also heard from someone that they like bright flashing neon lights so I added some of that. And then I just sorta assumed they must be into goofy looking buildings that dance around the screen so I threw some of those in and it turns out they like that quite a bit.

“I can’t explain what the video is about but I think it’s pretty obvious what’s going on.”

The Besnard Lakes Are The Last of the Great Thunderstorm Warnings will be their first LP since 2016’s A Coliseum Complex Museum. The Besnard Lakes Are The Last of the Great Thunderstorm Warnings album will arrive 29th January 2021 via Full Time Hobby
