Big|Brave Drop “i felt a funeral” from Forthcoming Album A Chaos of Flowers


Montreal’s own doomy/experimental/drone outfit Big|Brave has announced a new album, A Chaos Of Flowers, out April 19 via Thrill Jockey, and they’ve shared the first single from the record.

Inspired by Emily Dickinson’s poetry, the song “i felt a funeral” blends contrasting sounds, themes, and influences to build the track. Speaking of the single’s release, guitarist Mathieu Ball said making the music video felt a lot like when they were writing the song.

“The making of this video employed a similar process as we do when writing music. As we’ve learned to let the flow of ideas take its course, the act of creating works whether with fully formed concepts or an unfinished notion, starting the work itself acts as a sort of guide to where the final outcome may land.

“We realized that something more visually minimal than what we first imagined was the way to go. By using a single-take that loosely follows Wattie’s movements, with moments of imperfection, lost focus, and fluctations in lighting, “the performer (Robin) and the audience both partake in this visual and aural conversation together creating a more intimate visual space. The audience is led in and out of her intimate space all while being kept at safe distance. Paired with the lyrical content, it can be considered an apt representation of the elements of mental collapse – a simplified visual dance with the inner and outside world.”

The band will embark on a tour this May across the U.K. and Europe, and will announce North American dates soon. You can find the full tour list, as well as the new album’s tracklist, below.
