Boreal Sons, the piano-led, art-rock band from Calgary, have been making music heavy on thoughtful lyrics and lush melodies with unconventional chord structures and arrangements and quietly converting fans over the release of two EP’s and one album. Having wrapped a national tour in the fall of 2013 to support the release of their debut record, Threadbare, the group now announce a run U.K. dates kicking off on May 1 with plays at Liverpool Sound City, The Great Escape Festival in Brighton and then a gig in London, Upstairs At The Garage on May 11.
Today, Boreal Sons also reveal a thoughtful and cinematic take on Threadbare track, Secret Keeper. Shot by Brock Davis Mitchell from Shot At The Dark fame, the video features a minute long French, sub-titled prologue, which sets a somber, very apt tone, for the track. It is available to watch and share by clicking the track name above.
Boreal Sons, released their debut EP 2010’s Whom Thunder Hath Made Greater, the product of several years of writing and practice and in 2011, released Bedtime Briar, a concept EP based on the sleeping habits of one if the band member’s dog. Threadbare as a full-length, explores questions of consciousness and identity.
