The Besnard Lakes: Raindrops

After five albums of sometimes innovative, always worth experiencing alternative psychedelia, Montreal's The Besnard Lakes return with what conceptually feels like their most ambitious album to date. The Besnard Lakes Are The Last Of The Great Thunderstorm Warnings will mark a record setting for the band five-year gap between it and 2016’s A Coliseum Complex Museum which was an attempt by Jace Lasek and Olga Goreas to come up with more concise and easily digestible songs. On the new album though The Besnard Lakes go back to following their instincts and deliver a 72-minute suite about the darkness of dying and the light on the other side, a nine song set meant to be heard as one.

Mentioning the Garden of Eden in its lyrics, new single, Raindrops, pays a tribute to the great Mark Hollis of Talk Talk, and reveals how The Besnard Lakes approach their concept with intrigue, sweetness and warmth, and despite the grim subject matter it stays clear from the deep darkness and the macabre, while musically it sounds alluring and intricate, and definitely up to the band's high standards. 

The Besnard Lakes Are the last of the Great Thunderstorm Warnings will be out January 29th, 2021.
