Watch ‘Inferno,’ the Debut Video From Montreal’s Blood and Glass

+

The lavish, haunted video you are about to watch is from enigmatic new Montreal outfit Blood and Glass, who have sprouted like a dead rose onto that city’s endlessly fertile music scene. The song is called “Inferno,” and it’s a carefully orchestrated, sonically textured descent into the abyss—albeit a very warm one. “This song is about a girl who faces her demons,” says singer Lisa Iwanycki. “They wrestle her to the ground and burn through the floor, falling into the earth’s core. She has no choice but to dance with them.” As for the video, by French director Thomas Lesourd, it’s a baroque parable of fallen creatures that evokes some Lynch, some Kubrick, and early silent films. It’s melancholic, it’s mysterious, it’s beautiful.
