Golden Lion - Single

For 2013’s Until In Excess, Imperceptible UFO LP, NCM’s Kerry Doole deemed The Besnard Lakes “arguably Canada’s best purveyors of wide-screen psychedelia/space rock”. A couple years on and the title could still hold true. For proof, look no further than the Montreal act’s latest offering – new single “Golden Lion”. Densely-woven, textured soundscapes, trippy fuzzed-out guitar licks and frontman Jace Lasek’s soaring falsetto make it a knockout, honeyed headphone delight – and surprisingly compact, based on their usual sprawling track lengths. The tune will appear on both a 12” EP of the same name (due November 13) and on an upcoming full-length, A Coliseum Complex Museum (due January 22).
