Published Apr 04, 2017Montreal-based garage rockers I.D.A.L.G. are set to unveil their brand new video "Lac de Plumes," and Exclaim! has the exclusive premiere.
The psyched-out track appeared on the band's 2015 LP Post Dynastie, and it's now been paired with visuals thanks to director Emily Pelstring. The clip was shot on black-and-white 16mm film, and aims to capture the "sensual and bizarre" of the 1920s cabarets in New York and Berlin.
Pelstring explains that the video tells the intertwining stories of a woman smoking and waiting for a phone call, and a slithering snake in a fantastical forest world. Transported through a magical jewelry box, the two worlds collide and swirl together in a captivating series of shots.
"We were looking for something special for 'Lac the Plumes,' something different, something weird, without knowing exactly what that would mean in images," the band tell Exclaim! "We came across a music video which Emily had made for the Pink Noise and we knew right away that it would work. We gave her total free rein... and the result is outstanding."

I.D.A.L.G. have one remaining live show scheduled for May 25 at Quai des Brume in Montreal, before retreating to the studio to record their sophomore LP later this year.
