Winnipeg psych-rock band Juniper Bush dropped a brand new music video for “Foresight” on Friday, the second single off of their upcoming debut album.
Two of the four members of the band, Lizzy Burt and Danny Hacking, are responsible for directing the five-and-a-half-minute long video that is packed full of symbolism and reference to themes of isolation and addiction.
Here is Burt talking about the video for “Foresight”:
“In the video, we tried to unravel that idea even further, using the mime to convey meaning versus perception, and the alienation that can come from breakdowns in communication. There is a paralyzing silence that can fall over us when we’re not aligned with ourselves. The mime symbolizes this silence, but also illustrates the capacity to overcome one weakness by mastering another: body language and self-control.”
Juniper Bush’s debut album, Healing Through a Sonic Figure, is out April 3 via Transistor 66.
The album release will also kick off a string of shows in western Canada through April. Here are the dates:
April 3 – The Good Will Social Club – Winnipeg, MB
April 9 – TBC – Saskatoon, SK
April 10 – The Palomino Smokehouse and Social Club – Calgary, AB
April 11 – The Aviary – Edmonton, AB
April 12 – T+A Vinyl and Fashion – Regina, SK
April 17 – The Merch – Selkirk, MB
Hi, my name is Max. I’m a journalism student currently on placement here at Canadian Beats. I grew up in the GTA, but I’ve been around Ontario a little bit for school in the past few years. I think in a lot of ways the landscape of Canadian music is partially shaped by the journalists who choose to dedicate their time to giving it exposure. By promoting and contributing to a healthy media environment for Canadian artists, journalists contribute in their own way to keeping a strong Canadian music identity alive. I’m excited to hopefully be a small part of that contribution over the next few weeks.
