Montreal band The Besnards have shared their latest single “Feuds With Guns,” a dreamy buoyant piece that feels perfect for daydreaming the rest of this year…and the first two quarters of next year. Along with the song, the band has shared a quirky animated video by Dr. Cool, which you can check it out below:

On the video, Dr. Cool explained:

“I rotoscoped a couple of the big dives from a video of an extreme high-diving contest that took place in the 80s.  About a week after I had animated the first guy’s big jump, I returned to the video to check out some other usable clips. I realized I had never watched the full clip of the first jump – I had just stopped once he hit the water. I found out that after he lands in the water he floats back up unconscious and then gets taken away on a stretcher. So now what was I supposed to do?  People in the comments were asking what had happened but no one knew the answer. After a bunch of snooping around the internet I found the guy’s Facebook and he’s TOTALLY alive. His name is Pat and he lives in Florida. I messaged him but he hasn’t answered.”

The track is from their upcoming album The Besnard Lakes Are The Last Of The Great Thunderstorm Warnings, which will be out on January 29th.
