The prolific Man meets Bear (a group that apparently features an “experimental housewife”) is about a month away from releasing a new album, Huronian Cadence. But until then. Grayowl Point is happy to premiere the Toronto band’s first single and video from the album, “Lucan.”
The video, created by Kitchener, Ont.-based artist Melissa Boraski (who also makes music as Eiyn Sof), is a seemingly abstract affair, starting with a shimmering grey and moving into something more cosmic, until the end of the video reveals a surprise. The accompanying song is wonderfully jarring, starting off sounding like a lo-fi campfire song before becoming a massive wall of sound.
Check out the video and song below, and look out for Huronian Cadence on May 15.
