This atmospheric, cinematic sonic soundscape from The Besnard Lakes is utterly absorbing. It’s a psychedelic dream of a song from the Montreal band. ‘Raindrops’ is the first single from the forthcoming double album, ‘The Besnard Lakes Are The Last of the Great Thunderstorm Warnings’, which is due to drop on 29th January 2021. Each side of the double LP is named: ‘Near Death’, ‘Death’, ‘After Death’ and ‘Life’, representing a journey to the brink and back, a journey into darkness and back to the light. Compelling.
