La Force is the breakout solo project from Broken Social Scene’s Ariel Engle. She has recently unveiled the video for “Lucky One”.
Engle says, “The video for ‘Lucky One’ is striking in its restraint. There’s a purposeful lack of both narrative and fast cuts. It features instead Charles-André Coderre’s manipulated film over images of myself. It’s meditative in its simplicity. An emotional mirror of the song.”
Charles adds, “We preferred to leave room for the viewer’s imagination rather than impose a way of interpreting the song. I did a special colour chemical treatment on 16mm film to create the foregrounded image. Ariel appears as a spectre, kind of a distant reminiscence under layers of film.”
La Force also announces headline dates in North America this fall, on the heels of captivating spring performances opening for Feist at Santa Teresa Festival, and Patrick Watson at Massey Hall. The live four-piece will play Canada in September and New York, Washington, Philadelphia in October. Tickets go on saleFriday. Visit: www.laforceband.com
