of Montreal – “Let’s Relate” Video

Ben Rouse

of Montreal released their fourteenth studio album, Innocence Reaches, a few weeks ago. They’re about to embark on a long North American tour, and today they’re sharing a video for “Let’s Relate.” One of our commenters pointed out that the song sounds like “Kevin Barnes fronting LP1-era Crystal Castles,” and I haven’t been able to get that comparison out of my head. It’s a great song, and now it has an ebullient video to go along with it which was directed by Benjamin Rouse and Barnes and takes place at a drag party. “In a concupiscent spirit-rebellion against the discriminatory policies being championed by Right Wing/Christian Wrong politicians against the LGBTQ community as of late, we present an altogether inclusive and decidedly love-addled message to the world,” Barnes says of the video. “Let’s not hate! LET’S RELATE!” Watch and check out oM’s upcoming tour dates below.
