Arcade Fire offshoot and Canadian collective Bell Orchestre have shared a performance video for their swirling new track, “IV: What You’re Thinking.”
While gearing up for the release of House Music on March 19th via Erased Tapes/Envision Records, the group have offered up a nuanced, dissonant preview of what to expect from the expansive, highly collaborative collection.
The accompanying black-and-white video sees the band completely in the zone, as they each play off of each other’s explorative sound, making for a perfectly chaotic blend of technical, finessed instrumentals.
Watch the video for “IV: What You’re Thinking” below.
“Most of my favourite recordings have some element of an explorative and accidental feeling within the music, a feeling which reflects the truth of musical minds which are partially super focused on specific musical ideas and partially wandering, exploring the musical world surrounding those ideas,” the band’s Richard Reed Parry explains. “I think it’s really satisfying as a listener when you can hear a musical mind exploring an idea – not just a musician who has pre-formed an idea and rehearsed it 100 times until it’s totally perfect and ironed out.”
In addition to the album, a film about the making of the record is set for release in March.
