Great Lake Swimmers released two new singles in February, and now there’s a stunning new video to accompany one of them — plus the announcement of the band’s new digital EP, “Side Effects” out Friday, April 13.
Directed by Anthony von Seck and filmed in the 145-year-old Bishop Cronyn Memorial Church in London, Ont. — where the band recorded the single — the video for “The Talking Wind” centres on Great Lake Swimmers performing in the church, awash in striking purple and blue lights, at times inter-spliced with shots of wheat swaying back and forth in time with the music. It’s a beautiful session that highlights every moving part of the song, which was arranged by Drew Jurecka and co-produced by Chris Stringer (Union Sound).
Watch the video below, premiered earlier this week by CBC Music, and check out the full tracklist and album cover for Friday’s “Side Effects” EP release via Nettwerk below that.
