Published Apr 22, 2014Owen Pallett has tantalized fans with a couple of videos from his upcoming In Conflict album, and now he's shared another with "Song for Five & Six."
The song is based around blippy arpeggiators, which provide the foundation for Pallett's sensitive croons. Violin takes over halfway through, and the song builds to a lush electroacoustic groove before stripping back down for a quiet coda.
Meanwhile, the accompanying black and white video reinforces the bubbly flourishes by showing dancers from the National Ballet School of Canada performing an intricate routine. It was directed by Jeff Scheven and choreographed by Robert Binet.
Originally due on May 13, In Conflict is now out on May 27 via Domino/Secret City. He also has a string of solo shows coming up, including a few in Canada, and you can see those here.
