Published Nov 12, 2015Ahead of next year's A Coliseum Complex Museum LP the dark horses in Montreal's the Besnard Lakes have a 12-inch called Golden Lion coming out tomorrow (November 13). In anticipation of this release, they have shared the cut "The Motorway."
The track begins in quiet, stately fashion, as gentle orchestrations are accompanied by a slow, steady drum beat and tender falsetto coos. The arrangement swells at the one minute-mark, as distorted electric guitars and plinky glockenspiel swells into a catchy, pop-friendly shoegaze blur.
This song appears on this week's 12-inch but not the subsequent full-length. A Coliseum Complex Museum will be out on January 22 via Outside/Jagjaguwar.
