Published May 31, 2016Back in the fall, Montreal two-piece Gold Zebra unveiled a video for "A Summer Love," serving as the translated title track to the Francophone film Un Amour d'Été. The band provided the musical accompaniment to Jean-François Lesage's film, and now that soundtrack is getting a proper release.
Nine of the 10 new tracks are instrumentals, set to a story told from the perspective of an outsider in the city during summer.
"Late at night, atop the mountain that overlooks the city, couples lay in the grass and linger in after-hours picnics, bodies move in closer, expressions transform," reads a description of the film. "You roam from gatherings to budding couples, never quite able to savour this fever, or hold it in your arms. You want to feel their wonderment, yet it slips through your fingers. You are merely a bystander, a simple voyeur. You are not invited to the party."
The film premiered back in November at Montreal's RIDM festival, but will reach wider theatre audiences on Friday (June 3). That's the official release date for the Un Amour d'Eté soundtrack, as well.
Before the full audio and visual elements of the project officially arrive, though, scroll past the full album's tracklisting to hear the premiere of the dramatic, suspense-building electro-tinged instrumental "Reflecting Lights."
