The Besnard Lakes – “Color Yr Lights In” Video (NSFW)

Back in April, Montreal natives the Besnard Lakes, released their fourth album, Until In Excess, Imperceptible UFO. Today, the band has released a video for album track “Color Yr Lights In.” The moody video features a man on the verge of a mental breakdown who deals with his misery through a series of self-destructive behaviors, including hitting himself, picking up prostitutes, breaking into cars, and lots of chain smoking. The Besnard Lakes — husband-wife duo Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas, Kevin Laing, and Richard White — create a comforting ethereal atmosphere that cradles the lyrics. As the drums and heavier guitar come in for the first chorus, they supplement Lasek and Goreas’s harmonized vocals. The video ends with a naked cathartic leap into a community pool, where its subject seems to achieve momentary peace. Check out the video below.
