Mention that you like The Besnard Lakes around someone else that is also a fan, and you will see their face light up with excitement. Since the release of their second record, The Besnard Lakes are the Dark Horse, people have slowly discovered them, and those that have had the record for longer have realized it's one of their favorites in recent years. The combination of Beach Boys' harmonies, Low's sense of darkness, and Sigur Ros' dramatics is irresistible to most who hear it.
Another great indie rock gift from Montreal, The Besnard Lakes return with ...Are the Roaring Night, and the strength of this new record will surely garner them more fans and acclaim. The record is massive – epic in just the right measure, quiet in all the right spots, and mindblowing all the way through. It is an album in the truest sense. With each track dependant on the other nine tracks, and perfect sequencing, The Besnard Lakes create their own world, a world that it's easy to lose yourself in.
The Besnard Lakes will be at The Beachland Ballroom on May 26th. THEY ARE AN INCREDIBLE LIVE BAND!
