The Besnard Lakes’ music introduces you into a world of psychedelic and thrilling sounds. Their newest album, The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night, has an epic sound that make you want to stand up and shake your hair to the music. The album initiates with a very atmospheric feel. The first song Like the Ocean, Like the Innocence lures you in with a soft synthesizer that slowly evolves into an electric and thrilling piece.
The whole album is an experience. Each song builds up well to the next one and each one is an original and captivating musical experiment with guitar solos, synthesizer effects and harmonious background vocals. The song Albatross integrates background vocals that resemble the beach boys harmonizing, but the instrumentation has an alternative feel. Overall the band has a very new sound, yet they are obviously influenced by older psychedelic masters like Pink Floyd. In their newest album, The Besnard Lakes have succeeded in creating dark, electrifying ambiance music that invades your entire body.
